Domestic abuse is a significant safeguarding issue in all societies and is a challenge for everyone. This guidance has been reviewed and updated (previously in pocket guide format) in response to the recognition by the RCN of the need for nurses, midwives and health care support workers and all health care professionals to have an understanding of the impact of the domestic abuse of patients, clients and colleagues.
Domestic abuse is both complex and commonplace, and impacts on everyone, either personally or professionally. This publication outlines the RCN’s position on domestic abuse and our work to raise awareness of the issue amongst health care professionals. It also includes details of resources for further information.
