DOMESTIC VIOLENCE: STILL A NEW AGENDA IN HEALTHCARE

By Elaine J Alpert, MD,MPH Domestic violence is a common, often tragic, public health problem in the United States that affects men as well as women, children as well as the elderly. As often the first professionals to encounter victims of domestic violence, physicians have a dual role - an individual as well as a public or advocacy role. Physicians are now expected to inquire routinely about domestic violence, document the findings, validate and support patients, and communicate concerns. Although fear keeps patients affected by domestic violence from leaving abusive relationships and from disclosing the abuse, these patients want to be identified and helped by their healthcare providers. In this video, Dr. Elaine Alpert explains how physicians can quickly and confidentially screen patients for domestic violence, prepare adequate legal documentation, provide appropriate medical and supportive care, and coordinate outside resources, all within the constraints of a busy medical practice

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE: INTERVENTION STRATEGIES FOR THE PHYSICIAN

By Elaine J Alpert, MD, MPH

Domestic violence can affect anyone - including your patients. It occurs in every age group, race, culture, social class, and in all types of relationships. For example, every year, one to two million women in the U.S. are victims of partner abuse. Elder abuse is also increasingly being reported. Since domestic violence is so common, physicians need to be prepared to routinely screen for it in their practices and intervene appropriately. Dr. Alpert provides an overview of the scope and complexities of domestic violence and offers practical measures to help physicians identify and manage patients who are victims. In addition, real-life survivors speak of their own experiences dealing with domestic violence and of their encounters with health care professionals.

    BREAKING THE CYCLE OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

    Domestic violence is an insidious, pervasive, and unfortunately growing problem in our society. It results in more serious injuries to women than muggings, automobile crashes, and rape combined.

    Nurses, physicians, social workers, and other healthcare workers are in a unique position to detect the problem, and to intervene to break the cycle of violence. They may be the first to observe the physical symptoms of abuse and, if they have good relationships with their patients, may be the ones victimized women choose to confide in. This film, with its accompanying Resource Manual, contains the basic information needed to diagnose, document, and refer victims for additional assistance.

    Reviews
  • "Perfect for clinical in-service presentations, this program gives practical steps toward intervening, documenting, and referring patients. It stresses clarifying the therapeutic goal and empowering the patient with information and options. The technical aspects of the video are professional, and it is divided into clear-cut sections so the tape can be stopped at various points for discussion or instruction purposes. The accompanying guide is a valuable resource on its own, but used in conjunction with the video provides a complete package for domestic violence training for health care professionals. Highly recommended." - MC Journal

  • "An excellent tool for training and stimulating discussion. Intended as a consciousness-raising and training tool for physicians and other medical personnel, it is also well-suited to a broader viewing audience." - Science Books & Films

  • "This wonderful production's goal is to help physician, especially, learn to recognize the signs and symptoms of domestic violence. Highly recommended." - Video Librarian

    CODE OF SILENCE: OFFICER-INVOLVED DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

    A program about domestic violence committed by law enforcement personnel.

    According to the National Center for Women and Policing, forty percent of America's law enforcement officers have used violence against their domestic partners.

    This new program featuring Mark Wynn, twenty-year veteran of the Nashville Police Department, describes the trauma experienced by female partners of officers, and emphasizes the need to adopt model policies establishing procedures for handling domestic violence committed by law enforcement. Survivors, who are themselves police officers, tell their powerful stories of being abused and their reluctance to talk about it. One survivor only realized she was being abused when she attended domestic violence seminars as part of her law enforcement training, and another describes being in full uniform with a squad car parked outside her home, and then being chased in her neighborhood by her ex-husband, also a police officer.

    WHEN DOMESTIC VIOLENCE COMES TO WORK

    In a survey of senior executives from Fortune 1000 companies, 66% agreed that a company's financial performance would benefit from addressing the issue of domestic violence among its employees, and 49% said that domestic violence has had a harmful effect on their company's productivity, 47% on attendance, and 47% on health care costs. - Roper Starch Worldwide Survey for Liz Claiborne, Inc.

Women who are abused at home have increased health care costs, absenteeism, turnover, and stress in the workplace, as well as lower productivity.

This training program can save your organization direct financial costs such as: increased medical and medical insurance expenses, reduced productivity, increased absenteeism, increased turnover, increased recruitment, hiring and training, attorney fees and court costs, disability accommodations, lost business, increased security, and consultant fees.
