Product Description

Edited by Anne McMurray and Debra Jackson

Published: May 2006
ISBN: 978-0-9750436-6-0
Pages: xii+164


Interpersonal violence is an insidious social problem that manifests itself in many different forms - including physical, sexual and emotional abuse as well as neglect.

Advances in Contemporary Nursing and Interpersonal Violence provides leading opinion pieces, reviews and new research perspectives on intimate partner violence and workplace violence, its impacts on nurses, their families and the community.

Industry standards recommend that all staff undertake compulsory training for dealing with potentially violent and aggressive situations, particularly in Mental Health (Victorian Dept of Human Services, Health and Community Services Union, Australian Nursing Federation & Victorian Healthcare Industry Association 2003).

It is to be hoped that through dissemination of knowledge in this issue that the power to arrest the insidious march of violence in nursing is generated.
Fiona Armstrong on behalf of the Australian Nursing Federation

This special issue redresses the inadequacy of current responses to violence in the workplace and current explanatory discourses of violence and aggression that serve to maintain the status quo. It is essential reading for policy, educators, nurses and other health professionals.
