Updated CPG: Family Violence

The Family Violence CPG has been updated by the CPG Committee.


The Key points for the CPG are

  1. Family violence (FV) has a lifetime impact on a child’s health and wellbeing. Recognising FV can be lifesaving
  2. Recognising the risk factors for FV followed by sensitive enquiry are the first steps in assisting families. If you notice signs of FV, ask
  3. FV work is difficult and not a single clinician’s responsibility to manage. Seek multidisciplinary support early
  4. Special consideration must be given to safe documentation in the patient’s medical record
