Quality Assessment/Quality Improvement Tool For Domestic Violence Programs
The following quality assessment tool was developed in 2016 by Futures Without Violence and Dr. Elizabeth Miller, University of Pittsburgh. It is intended to provide Domestic Violence (DV) programs with some guiding questions to assess how well they may be addressing the health needs of DV survivors. This includes addressing physical and mental health concerns as well as access to health services. The information is to be used as a benchmark for each program to engage in quality improvement efforts. Complete the tool as honestly and completely as you can—there are no right or wrong answers, and your program should not be penalized for identifying areas for improvement. For questions that you respond yes to, it may be helpful to attach and review corresponding forms, policy, tools, etc.
