Project: Nurse leaders in LTC: Preventing, Identifying, Managing and Reporting Resident-to-Resident Aggression

This study will describe nurse leaders’ experiences with, and responses to, resident-to-resident aggression in long term care in Ontario Canada. The study will include 12-15 formal nurse leader interviews.  Data collection and analysis will occur concurrently and be informed by the LEADS in a Caring Environment framework. This framework defines three components of effective leadership (Being, Caring, Doing) expressed as five domains; 1) leads self, 2) engages others, 3) achieved results, 4) develops coalitions, 5) system transformation. Findings will inform future leadership practices and inform the design, implementation and evaluation of future interventions for nurse leaders.
