The 'Domestic Violence & Abuse' template can be accessed from auto-consultations or via the other safeguarding templates. There are also prompts to consider the possibility of safeguarding issues on other relevant consultation templates too, for example emergency contraception.
The template begins with reminding the clinician to ensure that they are discussing any issues and information with the patient in a safe environment. The template then ensures that the consultation is recorded and coded correctly. The template includes police notifications and court jurisdictions, along with links to HARKS questionnaires and DASH forms.
