JCUMSA values the safety and well-being of its members and firmly believes that all students have the right to feel safe on clinical placements and while studying at JCU.
If you would like to report an incident, you thought was inappropriate or made you feel uncomfortable or unsafe you may fill in the form below. Alternatively, you can contact an executive member directly to make a report, for example the President ([email protected]) or the Academic Vice President ([email protected]).
Who will see my report?
- Reports will be anonymised and reviewed by the Incident Response Subcommittee of the JCUMSA Executive which includes the President, Academic Vice-President, Community and Wellbeing Officer and Secretary.
- Only these members of the Executive will know that you made a report.
- Your name, included in this report, will not be disclosed to any members of the JCU staff or other members of the JCUMSA executive, should you choose to remain anonymous.
How will my report be handled?
- The Incident Response Subcommittee will review the report and with your permission, one member may contact you to confidentially gather further information and offer support.
- Any incident regarding a JCU staff member or a clinical supervisor will be taken anonymously to a trusted JCU staff member by one of the members of the Incident Response Subcommittee and bring it to their attention.
- A member of the Incident Response Subcommittee will contact you to provide you with an update of the outcome of your report.
No information pertaining to your report will be disclosed to other parties without your permission.
Do I have to include my name in the report?
- Unfortunately, you are required to include your name to add validity to your report. Your report will be made anonymous before any further action is taken and your name will not be released to any external parties.
The idea of this form, if required is to collate responses from students to flag with the College of Medicine and Dentistry. Unfortunately, if we cannot confirm that the reports are from multiple students the claim is less valid.
