The risk of occupational violence is a cause for considerable concern in Australian general practice. Emerging evidence from Australian general practice is consistent with evidence from the United Kingdom that occupational violence is common and has important effects on practitioner welfare and delivery of care. This article provides an overview of the evidence of prevalence and impact of violence directed against GPs as a context for measures to increase the safety of GPs and their staff.
