Strengthening Health Care-Based Domestic Violence Programs through Evaluation: Part 2

Title: Strengthening Health Care-based Domestic Violence Programs through Evaluation: Part 2

Date Recorded:  January 31, 2013

Description: Building on Part 1, this webinar will focus on validated tools designed to evaluate the integration of a health care-based response to domestic violence (DV), and measure physician preparedness to support patients experiencing DV. Dr. Coben will discuss the Delphi Instrument for Hospital-Based Domestic Violence Programs. This tool has been used extensively, nationally and internationally and measures nine domains of program activities. Dr. Zink will discuss the Family Violence Quality Assessment Tool for Primary Care Offices, a modified version of Dr. Coben’s Delphi Instrument. The tool may be used to assess family violence efforts in primary care at the beginning and intermittently. It is meant to be a tool for identifying deficiencies so they can be remedied and the care to patients living with violence and abuse can be improved. Dr. Short will discuss the Physician Readiness to Manage Intimate Partner Violence Survey (PREMIS) tool. It is a comprehensive and reliable survey measuring health care provider preparedness to manage patients experiencing intimate partner violence.
