Position statement: Violence and aggression towards nurses

A position statement on violence and aggression towards nurses that clearly states the unacceptability of this behavior in the work context of nurses has been requested. 

This would be in addition to the other resources that NZNO provides on managing situations of conflict, de-escalation and health and safety in workplaces. 

The draft attached has had input from NZNO staff members and was drafted using research about nurses and colleagues in other health professions who are subjected to verbal and physical violence and aggression at work.

Please send feedback to by 15 February 2019.
