Abstract
Although training is often recommended as a part of a comprehensive approach to address occupational violence, little empirical literature exists to support this recommendation. Over 40% of nurses responding to the Minnesota Nurses Study reported being trained about occupational violence, involving seven different training topics. Although at the univariate level, an increased risk was identified for nurses trained in managing assaultive/violent patients, no statistically significant results remained at the multivariate level. This lack of protection from training is consistent with previous research, although the explanations for this lack of effect remain unclear. Additional research is necessary to obtain more specific details on occupational violence training, including training content and methods, to understand more thoroughly the impact of training on occupational violence.
