Objective: This presenttion will address strtegies needed to develop domestic violence programs and protocols. Background: Violence is a complex phenomenon that affects women physically, economically, socially, and emotionally. Nurses often become frustrated when their individual efforts fail to change institutional practices, not realizing that interdisciplinary collaboration is necessary to address institutional barriers and effectvely mitigate the negative sequelae of abuse. Nurses have opportunities to develop collaborative partnerships to intervene in domestic violence at individual, institutional, community, and state levels. Individual: Information will be presented for nurses who wish to develop continuing education programs on domestic violence and will include a bibiliography, assessment and advocacy strategies, visual aides, national organizations, WEB sites, list of community agencies to incorporate as references and sources of information, and a presentation outline. Institutional: Program development for hospitals will be discussed including recruiting multidisciplinary personnel from nursing, medical, legal, and other hospital groups, how to incorporate community agencies for support and guidance as well as relief of harried hospital personnelin providing needed advocacy, and budgetary and political issues. AHRQ guidelnes for evaluating violence programs will be reviewed and suggested as a resource for the development of program objectives. Community and State: Nurses belong at the table with other community agencies and professionals that are involved with providing legal and advocacy services for families experiencing domestic violence. Opportunities for involvement in community and state coalitions will be addrssed as well as strategies for becoming involved in policy determination. Implications: Nurses have always made a difference in women's lives through their individual care interactions; it is now necessary to step forward and address the collective needs of abused women. While there are many barriers to intervening in domestic violence, there are steps that nurses can take to effectively develop and participate in institutional and community programs.
