Electronic Palm Domestic Violence Assessment Tool
In an effort to reach health practitioners who rely on palm-based electronic tools for quick reference, Futures Without Violence, formerly Family Violence Prevention Fund, in collaboration with Denise Bilbao, MD and Leigh Kimberg, MD, recently created a new assessment tool for domestic violence. Complete with tips on how to conduct inquiry, assessment, intervention, documentation, and follow-up for domestic violence, along with facts and web links, this palm ready tool is available in two formats, for either the iSilo or Documents to Go text readers.
The iSilo version allows you to link freely within the document as you would on a website, while the Documents to Go version resembles a more static Word document. The Documents to Go reader comes bundled with most palm operating systems, whereas the iSilo reader (widely used) is available for free online. These files are “beamable” so that you can share the tool with your fellow providers.
Once you’ve installed the iSilo reader, all you have to do is download the tool in iSilo format (click on the link below and save the files to your hard drive). Once the tool is available on your hard drive, use the “Install” utility on your Palm Desktop software so that it will be uploaded to your palm pilot during your next hotsync. Access it via the iSilo reader.
Documents to Go format
Documents to Go is a text reader that comes bundled with most palm operating systems. If it is not already on your palm, install it from the software CD that came with your palm.
Once you’ve installed the Documents to Go reader, all you have to do is download the tool in Documents to Go format (click on the link below and save the files to your hard drive). Once the tool is available on your hard drive, there are two ways to get it onto your palm. Either directly drag the document onto the Documents to Go icon (seen on your desktop), or choose “Add Item” when using the Documents to Go program. At your next hotsync, the tool will be directly added to your palm. Access it via the Documents to Go reader.
