Patient and visitor aggression in healthcare: the nurse managers’ perspective (United Kingdom)

Patient and visitor aggression (PVA) is of global concern and includes all verbal or physical behaviours from patients or visitors that threaten, attack or injure a person (psychologically and/or physically). 

The International Research Collaboration on Clinical Aggression (iRCCA) is conducting a study to gain an overview and compare the current situation regarding PVA in mental health and general hospitals in Canada, the UK and the USA from the nurse manager’s perspective.

In order to make a valuable comparison, Professor Joy Duxbury (chair of the Restraint Reduction Network), would like to invite you to participate in this study by completing a survey. The survey is aimed at:

  • Nurse managers and deputy nurse managers of all management levels
  • Nursing experts from general and psychiatric clinical settings
