Abstract

In recognition of the increasing problem of family violence, the authors developed and tested an interview protocol focused on female victims of family violence. The purpose of the protocol was to increase nurses' identification of battered women receiving care in the emergency department. Using a time-series design, data were collected from patient records during four months prior to introduction of the protocol. These data were compared to comparable post-protocol data. There was a significant increase in nursing staff identification of female domestic violence victims following introduction of the protocol.
