RCGP domestic violence guidelines

28 May 2012

The Centre for academic primary care has helped develop national guidance for general practice on responding to domestic abuse.

The Centre for Academic Primary Care has  helped develop guidance - Responding to Domestic Abuse: Guidance for General Practices - in collaboration with national charity Co-ordinated Action Against Domestic Abuse (CAADA), the Identification & Referral to Improve Safety (IRIS) programme and the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) and funded by the Department of Health.

The guidance includes key principles to help GPs and healthcare staff respond quickly and effectively to patients who disclose domestic abuse. The guidance also includes resources to help the practice team, including a process map for responding to domestic abuse and a services directory.

The full guideline can be found on the RCGP website.
