Thought-provoking tasks for healthcare professionals

Preparation to identify and respond to domestic violence is paramount.
(1) How well prepared do you feel in this regard and what education and/or training resources are available to you or are you aware of in your area of practice?
(2) Do you have a room in your clinical area where you can speak privately to patients or clients? (Behind curtains or screens is clearly not private or confidential).
(3) In your area of practice, how might patients or clients alert you that they wished to speak with you in private?
(4) Do you currently have a clear referral pathway for patients and/or clients to other services and support?
(5) Do you know what services and supports are available for those who disclose domestic violence in your area of practice, organisation and locality—and are contact details available to you?
(6) Do you know how to make a referral to adult and children’s safeguarding services?
