For my PhD dissertation, I have adapted a survey to be used in the United States (US) called, Nurses as Essential Partners in Recognizing and Responding to Child Abuse and Neglect. The purpose of this research is to understand what contributes to professional self-efficacy of child abuse and neglect knowledge and reporting among US nurses. This study has the potential to strengthen child protections by understanding the ability of the nursing workforce to identify early points of intervention and refer children/youth and families to support services in cases of child abuse and neglect.
This survey is for Registered Nurses educated in the US with a range of nursing educational backgrounds and professional roles and settings. We expect the survey to take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. We hope that you will consider completing the survey.
