Family Violence Quality Assessment Tool for Primary Care Offices
This tool was developed by Dr. Therese Zink for primary care offices (pediatric, family medicine, internal medicine and obstetrics/gynecology). It was developed by modifying Dr. Jeffrey Coben’s “Delphi Instrument for Hospital Domestic Violence Programs”. The tool may be used to assess family violence efforts in primary care at the beginning of a program’s implementation and intermittently when focusing on family violence as a quality improvement goal. It is meant to be a tool for identifying deficiencies so that they can be remedied to improve care to patients living with violence and abuse.
The project was funded by a Robert Wood Johnson Generalist Faculty Scholar grant.
