In 2017 Sydney Morning Herald Investigative Journalist, Kate McClymont was researching a story on workplace sexual harassment in Australia post the Harvey Weinstein #metoo storm that was engulfing Hollywood and the world. It was Bridget Ninness along with other women who spoke with Kate McClymont and broke the story on the years of torment she endured by Don Burke as his senior producer on Burke’s Backyard. Bridget had taken legal action against Don Burke for the alleged psychological injury she sustained in the workplace. The matter settled.

In doing so, you will also take away a rich understanding of the fundamental right to health for all communities on this planet.

Learn how the conceptual framework released In June 2021 by the World Health Organisation (WHO) provides a starting point for tackling the evolving field of Self Care and identifying Self Care interventions for future updates. WHO’s conceptual framework on self-care interventions has core elements from both “people-centred” and “health systems” approaches, underpinned by the key principles of human rights, ethics and gender equality. Self Care interventions, if situated in an environment that is safe and supportive, are an opportunity to help to increase people’s active participation in their own health, including patient engagement.
