Abstract

Background: Workplace violence (WPV) among medical workers, especially doctors, is one of the most alarming trends in the global healthcare system. This topic has been extensively researched around the world due to its frequent occurrence and importance. Objectives: Objectives of this study were to focus on the prevalence and types of workplace violence, and psychosocial effects on physicians, determine the factors contributing to workplace violence and see the effect of different socio-demographic variables on the type of violence faced by the physicians. Methodology: An analytical cross-sectional study was carried out in Lahore, Peshawar, Islamabad and Gujranwala, Pakistan. Data was collected online using google forms. A total of 255 doctors took part in the study. The chi-square test was used to find the association of demographic factors with different forms of WPV. Results: Of 14 final papers, various categories were created. With few overlaps, two studies focused on customized healthcare services for older, physically disabled people. Three studies focused on the importance of interventions in exercise. Three studies focused on how improvements in wheelchair control mechanisms affected their lives. Four studies focused on using technology to address their needs and accessibility to better services. One study focused on genetic testing of the disabled. One study focused on the ontology model for the rescue of LTC residents. Conclusion: Since workplace violence has a great impact on doctors, improvement of healthcare facilities, strong legislative measures and unbiased media reporting can be suggested to mitigate the violence inflicted upon doctors.
