Perils in Practice: The Prevention of Violence Against Healthcare Professionals aims to empower healthcare professionals in facing the challenges of aggressive, violent and destructive behaviour at clinics and hospitals. This book is the result of extensive and detailed analysis by experts across the country from different fields – medical, legal, policymaking, law enforcement, communication, media and the community at large.
It examines the value of effective communication, self-regulation and ethics, the legal framework, policy changes, the regulator’s perspective and the role of the media. It provides guidance on the protection of healthcare workers, including safety measures in healthcare facilities, the power of networking and the importance of law enforcement. The book will also sensitise the general public on the fallout of these events and the subsequent loss to the healthcare delivery system and to society.
