Abstract [en]

Background: Health care professionals, and nurses especially among them, play an essential role in the health sector response to Gender Based Violence. To be able to successfully address this major public health issue they need specific training in the topic. Therefore, the World Health Organization as well as Spanish institutions and policies, strongly recommend the inclusion of this topic in nursing undergraduate programmes. This study aims to assess how this recommendation has been implemented in the nursing undergraduate programmes offered in all Spanish universities.

Methods: A systematic review of each subjects’ study guide of the 91 nurse education programmes existing in Spain was conducted searching for the term “violence” to include references under different terminology as “violence against women”, “gender based violence” or “intimate partner violence”.

Results: Sixty-nine out of the ninety-one nurse education programmes taught in Spain have contents related to violence. Thirty-eight grades included Gender Based Violence in the content of one subject, 21 in two, eight in three and two in four. Only three programmes had a specific subject named “Nursing in Gender Based Violence”. Otherwise, gender violence was part of subjects mainly related with gender and culture (22%), psychology (20%), public health (20%) and women’s health (13%). When analysing results by Autonomous Region, four out of seventeen were found to have gender based violence included in all the grades offered in their area, while two had not any training in the topic. In the remaining regions inclusion varied between these two poles.

Conclusions: Gender Based Violence has been included in a great percentage of the nursing undergraduate education programmes taught in Spain. Assessing the effect this undergraduate training has on nurses’ response to gender based violence as well as differences in the effect depending on the training programme becomes a challenge for the next years.

Key messages:

  • Most of the Spanish universities have included training in Gender Based Violence in their nurse education programmes, which might positively affect the Health Sector's response to this health issue.
  • Assessing the effect these different undergraduate training programmes have on nurses’ response to Gender Based Violence becomes a challenge for the next years.
