Product Description: Every branch of healthcare has its own particular experience of violence, from direct physical or verbal aggression aimed at members of staff, to dealing with the victims of a crime perpetrated elsewhere. Since the first edition of this book was published in 1994, there have been hugedevelopments in understanding and managing violence in the healthcare setting. Violence prevention is now not just the concern of the frontline healthcare team, but also of architects, service managers, psychologists, governments, health and safety managers, human resources managers, and members ofthe emergency services. This fully revised and updated new edition will equip all members of these teams with the information required to understand the range of factors involved, and enable them not just to develop strategies to tackle the issues but also to deal with violence when it arises inboth hospital and community settings. Coverage includes the causes and nature of violence, including domestic violence, the effects on, and care of, the victims, as well as describing opportunities to limit the potential for violence through good design. This book is essential reading for allthose working in, or in association with, health services and related agencies. It is also an essential resource for anyone seeking to understand, prevent or survive violence.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
