1 in 5 nurses have been assaulted by patients; yet, hardly anyone reports to the legal authorities.
The researchers are inviting nurses (you!) to complete a survey so that we can understand what discourages from reporting assaults, and how you can be supported in navigating the legal system.
With this understanding, we could expand support systems for nurses to navigate the legal system, improve the reporting of assaults, influence community views that assaults on nurses are serious and attract significant penalties, and so ultimately to help deter OV in hospitals.
What do you need to do? We are asking you to:
Complete the study questionnaire (https://forms.office.com/r/ cT7Yy1GgbA) that asks for unidentifiable demographic information and your experiences with your employer, the police, and court process. This could take 10-15 minutes to complete.
Forward the study to a colleague or peer who might be interested in participating
Thank you for your inconvenience of 15 mins of your precious time
