Domestic violence and health

This chapter examines a range of practical tools that can be utilised in both training and clinical practice. If a general practitioner perceives his own role in relation to the other services offered by their less-respected colleagues, then collaboration with those individuals is likely to be more productive. This is evident in new training approaches, which are attempting to implement changes in undergraduate medical training, from a biomedical/wound-led hospital approach to one that is community based and holistically located. In light of such considerations, the chapter begins by examining medical training generally, before considering the concept of community-based and holistic training methods. Returning to the specific issue of domestic violence, it also addresses the impact of multi-agency training, before examining the concept of specialised training on domestic violence for healthcare professionals.
