Switch current view without history being added to stack?


I am somewhat new to Ionic and AngularJS and I am trying to understand the state navigation features and functions of Ionic / Angular routing. I have found documentation on how to navigate views using Angular routing and this works fine when I want to keep navigation history (so that the user can navigate backwards). However, sometimes I would like to be able to navigate to a different view without keeping the history of the previous views (so that the user would not be able to navigate backwards through the UI or the back button on the phone). Is there any documentation on how to accomplish this?
