La violenza o aggressione verso gli infermieri sul luogo di lavoro è un evento estremamente comune, soprattutto nelle aree critiche ed emergenziali ospedaliere. Negli ultimi anni il problema sembra essersi palesato anche in altre realtà, intra- ed extra-ospedaliere, rendendo il fenomeno sempre più all'ordine del giorno. Molti sono gli studi che identificano le importanti conseguenze fisiche, psico-sociali ed economiche per i soggetti e le istituzioni che subiscono questo fenomeno, ma lo studio e la prevenzione della violenza si colloca ai primi posti delle agende delle organizzazioni e agenzie per la sicurezza dei lavoratori e delle associazioni internazionali dei professionisti della salute.
