Title:
Clinical Aggression: Nurses' Views at Delnor Hospital
Author(s):
Herrmann, Susan
Author Details:

Abstract:
Aggressive behavior between healthcare workers has been a subject of increasing research and interest. It has been described as workplace incivility, bullying, intimidation, and lateral/horizontal violence. Despite differences in nomenclature and research instruments, the existence of these negative interactions among workers in the healthcare environment has been well established. A previous nursing research study,Clinical Aggression--a follow up study (Farrell, 1999) was adapted and expanded with the author's permission. It was chosen for modeling with modification because of its even handed approach to the subject matter. The question development was based on published workplace research as well as an earlier qualitative study by the original researcher that sought to identify nurses' self-described operational descriptions of clinical aggression. His tool, based on how nurses describe aggression in their workplace,captures a comprehensive view of the phenomena. It also allows nurses the option of free-texting a different response if desired or choosing to report that they do not perceive clinical aggression in their workplace. A poster is offered highlighting the results of this adapted clinical aggression study conducted at XXX Hospital in winter 2008. This international research collaboration is noteworthy because it represents the first time that the same questions have been used in different parts of the world to measure clinical aggression. Comparison of Australian and US results are included. Reference: Farrell, G. A. (1999). Aggression in clinical settings: Nurse's views -- a follow up study. Journal of Advanced Nursing, 29(3), 532-541.
