Abstract : Workplace bullying has increased lately. Interests to study the prevalence of workplace bullying and its associated factors have been steadily growing recently. 437 Bahraini female workers, aged 18 years or more responded. Our sample was collected through a convenient sample of HCWs working in 15 randomly chosen health centres. A NAQ-R questionnaire was sent to them. In this study, 76.2% of the participating Bahraini female HCW’s subjectively reported that they had not been bullied in the past six months. The mean score on the NAQ-R was M31.59+-SD10.90 with a range from 22 to 108.There was a significant relationship between the type of work and the work system. The number of sick leaves increased by those who experience bullying. Half of the HCWs respondents didn’t know about the presence of any support system. Violence against female HCWs in Bahrain is a prevalent problem. Enforcing the rules and regulations is a great way to avoid conflict and therefore bullying. Educating the female workers about the available support system is highly recommended.
