Expert Discusses Violence Against Nurses

In this episode of CURE Talks Cancer Podcast: Nursing Edition we speak with an oncology nursing expert on a topic not addressed enough, workplace violence.

For this month’s CURE Talks Cancer Podcast: Nursing Edition, we’re diving into an important — but unfortunate – reality in the world of healthcare: workplace violence. We’ll hear from Christine Pontus, MS, RN, COHN-S/CCM, of the Massachusetts Nurses Association about how the changing healthcare system may be leading to more violence against nurses and other practitioners. We discuss the warning signs that patients or caregivers present before becoming violent, as well as steps that institutions, policy makers, and nurses themselves can take to prevent abuse from happening.
