Abstract

Purpose This study was planned to determine the sensitivity of university students to violence toward children. Design and Methods This cross-sectional study consisted of students from nursing, physical therapy and rehabilitation, and midwifery departments, health technician programs, and medical faculty. Data were collected using a sociodemographic information form and the scale of sensitivity to violence toward children. Findings The difference between the scores of the university students from the scale was found statistically significant according to their departments, gender, and years (P > 0.05). The sociodemographic variables of the students were determined to affect the scores that they got from the scale of sensitivity to violence toward children by 4.6% (P < 0.05). Implications for practice More child-related content should be added to the educational curriculum.
