Many health care facilities across the U.S. have hired domestic violence/sexual assault (DV/SA) advocates to provide on-site services or utilize trained social workers and other trained health care staff to provide DV/SA intervention and referral. Ongoing evaluation is a critical component to measure the effectiveness of such programs. This webinar is for new and experienced DV/SA advocates, health care administrators/providers and students who want to learn more about evaluating healthcare-based DV/SA programs. This webinar will address the importance of understanding and developing quality improvement measures and annual goals that evaluate how the program is doing; where and how efforts should be targeted; alignment with organizational priorities; and overall program improvement. 

Part 2: Strengthening Healthcare-based Domestic Violence Programs through Evaluation 

Date & Time: Thursday, January 31st, 12-1:30pm Eastern (9-10:30am Pacific/ 10-11:30am Mountain/ 11-12:30 Central)

Building on Part 1, this webinar will focus on validated tools designed to evaluate the integration of a healthcare-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, a tool that has been used extensively to measure nine domains of program activities. Dr. Zink will discuss the Family Violence Quality Assessment Tool for Primary Care Offices, a tool for identifying deficiencies so they can be remedied and improved. Dr. Short will discuss the Physician Readiness to Manage Intimate Partner Violence Survey (PREMIS) tool, a comprehensive and reliable survey measuring health care provider preparedness to manage patients experiencing intimate partner violence.
