Study on Violence Against Resident Doctors in Maharashtra

Studies conducted globally have revealed the phenomenon of violence being inflicted on doctors, nurses and other healthcare providers. Studies have indicated that the factors leading up to this violence can be organizational, societal or individual; relatives of patients were most commonly found to be the perpetrators. Violence against healthcare providers impacts their physical and psychosocial health adversely; some studies even indicate signs of post traumatic stress disorders in doctors who had faced violence.
