Abstract

Domestic violence and sexual abuse are issues related to global health, society, and law. They are also the issues which World Health Organization (WHO) and International Council of Nursing (ICN) have been paying high attention to. Nurses play important roles in domestic violence and sexual abuse prevention and intervention by standing on the front line of the health care system, encountering domestic violence and sexual abuse cases. Studies have addressed the influence of domestic violence and sexual abuse education on nurses' attitudes, knowledge, management, clinical performance, and management outcomes of domestic violence and sexual abuse prevention and intervention. However, studies have also shown that only 15% to 56% of clinical nurses have ever received domestic violence and sexual abuse education from nursing curriculums in Taiwan. Therefore, the integration of domestic violence and sexual abuse prevention and intervention into nursing curriculum is critical. Moreover, the nursing education system in Taiwan has not established the standard and the regulation of domestic violence and sexual abuse prevention and intervention for nursing curriculum content, teaching strategy, and relevant clinical practice of nursing education. Without the standard and the regulation, nursing educators have no guidelines for integrating domestic violence and sexual abuse prevention and intervention into nursing curriculum. This article aims at describing the vision and the schematization, arousing nurses' and nursing educators' resonance, and coming up a common view about integrating domestic violence and sexual abuse prevention and intervention into nursing curriculum. This will contribute to nurses' greater performance and their decisive roles in domestic violence and sexual abuse prevention and intervention.
