Training for staff working with violent patients is frequently recommended, sometimes implemented, but rarely objectively evaluated..
In this longitudinal study 47 nurses attending a training day to learn strategies for coping with violent psychiatric patients were compared with 108 non-attending control group subjects..
The rate of assaults on staff on wards taking part in the study was 31% lower after implementation of the training and wards sending a majority of staff to the training experienced a particularly significant reduction in assaults..
The effectiveness of this 1-day training package is discussed.
