Clinical Topic: The purpose of this clinical project was to create and implement a domestic violence training program for use in both hospital-based and primary care organizations within the community of Erie, Pennsylvania that would meet objectives, including: 1) consistent assessment of all patients for the presence of domestic violence; 2) initiation of a plan of care for the appropriate intervention and referral of patients with positive domestic violence screens; and 3) comprehension of the significant contribution of domestic violence to morbidity and mortality in patient populations. Implementation: Creation and implementation included the following steps: 1) selection of video as the medium most attractive to health care professionals for continuing education; 2) a written script, "Ask Now, Ask Always," based on master's level domestic violence research (this script was peer reviewed by domestic violence educators, emergency department nurses and nurse practitioners, primary care physicians and communications specialists); and 3) video production using donated time and talent from a local television station with heavy viewer recognition. Outcomes: The effects that "Ask Now, Ask Always" have had on the health care community of Erie, Pennsylvania include: 1) presentation and acceptance of the tape as a training film by the Community Domestic Violence Coalition, including emergency departments and nursing orientation programs in two community hospitals; 2) application and pending acceptance of the film by a local health management organization for distribution to primary care offices; and 3) application and review by Area Health Education Coalition for Level I CME credits. Recommendations: 1) survey of viewers both before and three months after viewing to assess effectiveness of program in improving domestic violence screening and intervention; 2) development of accompanying written materials to enhance the training program; and 3) development of patient-based domestic violence education program to run as continuous feed in primary care and hospital based waiting areas, including foreign language and multi-cultural versions.
