Family Violence Project Evaluation: Health Response

Family Violence Project Evaluation : Health Response

Family violence poses a significant health risk for people in Aotearoa New Zealand and has been identified as a priority issue for Māori. Health consequences of family violence occur across the life span. As those who experience violence seek health care more often than individuals who have not experienced abuse, healthcare professionals are well-placed to intervene in family violence before it reaches crisis point.

This Violence Intervention Programme evaluation project monitors how District Health Boards (DHBs) are responding to Ministry of Health (MOH) initiatives aimed at increasing the responsiveness of the health system to the needs of women, children and whānau at risk for family violence. The study highlights the changing culture of healthcare settings in Aotearoa New Zealand with regards to family violence and in doing so, facilitates the refinement of MOH family violence initiatives. By working collaboratively with local DHB staff, and the national VIP team, the evaluation process builds competence to sustain programme monitoring and improvement processes towards consistent, quality service delivery.
