Ms Shradha Nikathil has completed 4 of the 5 years required for an MBBS qualification at Monash University and has intermitted in 2016 to undertake her Bachelor of Medical Science (Honours). For her research project, Ms Nikathil is in the process of completing a registered systematic review assessing the incidence and determinants of workplace violence within Emergency Departments amongst adult patients.
