The influence of nurse leaders on the presence of horizontal violence on staff nurses Keane, Merry-Ann Janine


Horizontal violence is a reality for many staff nurses; it has been recognized as an issue across the nursing profession for more than three decades, and yet there is very little interventional research on how nurse leaders can, and should, address the problem. This study has assessed the research evidence obtained using the Rapid Evidence Analysis (REA) method. What can be concluded from this analysis is that leaders should use tools such as authentic leadership, education of horizontal violence and cognitive behavioral rehearsal training to influence the presence of horizontal violence among staff nurses. Due to the limited number of studies, and methodologies used in those studies, further interventional research is needed to strengthen the science.
