Show Summary Details


From the outset, this research has contextualised the health interaction between women who experience domestic violence and healthcare professionals within the wider help-seeking activities of the stage-one participants. This chapter examines how the participating healthcare practitioners considered their interactions with other non-health professionals. Results from the domestic violence and health questionnaire found that only 14 per cent of the respondents had been involved in multi-agency work. The chapter begins by examining domestic-violence multi-agency collaborations generally, before examining specific interactions that take place between healthcare professionals and a number of other agencies.
