IHF White Paper on “Violence against people in hospitals” now available
27th September 2019
The global growth of workplace violence is impacting hospitals and health organizations worldwide. In November 2017, the IHF General Assembly adopted the “Fighting violence in health services” Resolution, to alert the international community of the growing violence in healthcare facilities and emphasize the need to implement measures to prevent and stop such phenomenon. According to this Resolution, the IHF Secretariat prepared a survey on “Violence against people in hospitals” with the objective of having IHF Members explore violence risk levels of hospitals and what is in place to limit/face acts of violence. You can now find the results of this survey in the related IHF White Paper.
