Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Nurses receive little or no education on domestic violence in their formal or continuing education programs. Methods to implement routine screening of patients for domestic violence may be impacted by the caregivers knowledge and/or attitude about domestic violence. Nurses at a large community hospital were invited to complete the Screening for Domestic Violence Questionnaire (Yonaka et al.2007) pre and post completion of a mandatory domestic violence education program and implementation of mandatory screening. Findings from the survey provided insight into some of the barriers that exist related to routine screening of patients for domestic violence. As a result of this study, a nurse champion model was established. Staff nurses representing each of the clinical areas served as peer educators furthering awareness of domestic violence and thereby improving compliance with screening for and responding to victims of domestic violence. Additional actions taken based on findings from this study include: creation of computerized chart audit tool to measure compliancy with assessment documentation, monthly report of referrals based on assessment responses, evaluation of situations where patients are not getting assessed, and collaboration with hospital interpreters to support screening of non-English speaking patients.
