CABRERA ESPINOSA, M.  and  GRANERO ALTED, M.J.. Nursing, gender violence and effects on children: redefining our role. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.22. ISSN 1695-6141.

The aim of this investigation is to look at the situation of families where gender violence is taking place in terms of its effects on children, focusing especially on assessing and understanding the specific causes of these effects, whilst analysing the role that health systems and nursing staff can play in tackling this social issue. To this aim, we carried out a non-probabilistic qualitative study which consisted of a series of non-structured retrospective interviews with 18 men who were serving a prison sentence for violence against their partners at the time of the investigation. A subsequent analysis of the content of the responses generated helped us to understand the effects that living in an environment where gender violence is taking place has on children, both in their current and future development, as well as to identify the role that nursing staff can play in detecting and responding to this serious problem as part of a multidisciplinary team.
