Abstract

Aggression and violence are common in the Emergency setting, with nurses out-ranking police and prison officers in exposure to workplace violence. This paper examines the current literature to identify the incidence of violence within the ED, precipitators of violence and aggression and the government policy directive of 'zero tolerance'. Methods of managing violence and aggression are explored, including environmental management, de-escalation, pharmacological and physical restraint and seclusion and these are linked to course content recommended for staff training.
