JABOUR SARAIVA, Renata; ROSAS, Ann Mary T.F; VALENTE, Geilsa Soraia C y VIANA, Ligia De O. QUALIFICATION OF NURSES FOR CARE TO CHILD VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. Cienc. enferm. [online]. 2012, vol.18, n.1, pp. 17-27. ISSN 0717-9553. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95532012000100003.
Objective: To identify the existing literature that addresses nursing care to children victims of domestic violence. We chose a descriptive qualitative bibliographical type approach. A virtual library search (SciELO, BIREME, LILACS), a scientific review (Revista Brasileira de Enfermagem, Revista Nursing, RADIS Comunicação em Saúde, Revista Adolescer, Revista Eletrônica de Enfermagem) and a review of the existing legislation, were held; 99 articles in the period 2001 to 2010 which met the search criteria were found. With this observation, we conclude that it is necessary to update nurses from emergency units of general hospitals on the issue of domestic violence and child abuse, in order to reduce the negligence regarding compulsory notification and minimizing the recurrence of acts of aggression.
