Domestic Violence Quality Assessment/Quality Improvement Tool for Clinics, Hospitals and other Health Systems
The following Domestic Violence (DV) Quality Assessment Tool was developed in 2016 by Futures Without Violence and Dr. Elizabeth Miller, University of Pittsburgh. It is intended to provide health care facilities some guiding questions to assess quality of care related to the promotion of healthy relationships and intervention related to DV within health care delivery. The information may be used as a benchmark for each program to engage in ongoing quality improvement efforts. Complete the tool as honestly and completely as you can—there are no right or wrong answers, and your clinic/hospital shouldn’t 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.
