Violence and aggression against nursing staff have been the subject of an ongoing campaign. However, incidents of violence continue to be under-reported. This article discusses factors leading to underreporting of incidents and focuses on how nursing staffs’ attitudes and responses to violence may contribute to the likelihood of reporting
incidents. Change management techniques are proposed to address the under-reporting of incidents and to improve the work environment.
