Violence in healthcare is recognised to be a serious problem world-wide. Emergency Departments (ED) are recognised to be the highest risk area for violence in this setting (Lee, 2001). Processes to assess risk of violence have so far shown a limited level of empirical validation (Cabilan, et al., 2020). The purpose of this study is to develop an evidence based violence risk assessment for routine use in the ED’s.
