The scope of this issue is to disseminate research evidence on violence prevention and management in the healthcare sector. Prevention and management strategies may be at any systems level—from the local level (e.g., acute care units, long term care facilities, primary care clinics) to government and policy levels (e.g., national and international). Prevention and management may include environmental or behavioural considerations, such as personal alarms, use of trained security personnel, de-escalation, and self-defense strategies. Violence may be Type 1 lateral violence or Type II violence (e.g., clients, families, visitors). The healthcare sector may include any setting, including acute care, long-term care, community and home care, mental health, and primary care. Research may be quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods or reviews that meet established review standards, and data may be primary or secondary sources.
