Program Description

The Nepean Blue Mountains Recognise, Respond & Refer (RRR) program aims to improve the patient journey and response for those experiencing or at risk of domestic and family violence (DFV) and those who seek behaviour change support who present at a general practice. This will be achieved by bringing DFV services and general practice together where information, resources and advice will be shared to achieve better identification and best course of action for those affected by DFV. 

To support this, we are introducing three Domestic and Family Violence Linkers (DFV Linkers) who will act as the ‘conduit’ between general practices and DFV services to support the implementation of the RRR program. The DFV Linker role is multi-faceted where they will be required to: 

  • Strengthen referral pathways from general practice to DFV services;
  • Develop relationships with general practice as a first point of call in an effort to increase their awareness through capacity building around DFV and information sharing and;
  • Enhance relationships with DFV services to improve the navigation of the system and support to those affected by DFV

Deliverables

  • Three DFV Linkers employed at appropriate services/organisations to work across the four LGAs in the Nepean Blue Mountains region
  • Deliver the RRR program to the target population
  • Contribute to the DFV training delivered to general practices and incidental coaching of practice staff
  • Improve outcomes for patients by providing a client centered response which is integrated and coordinated on behalf of the DFV Linker
  • Decrease the complexities associated to referral pathway to DFV services
  • Build capacity of general practice staff to have an increased knowledge of DFV

Expected Outcomes 

  • Increased understanding and recognition of the complexity around DFV including being able to recognise the signs of DFV for all practice staff
  • General Practices will become a safer place for people to disclose DFV
  • Patient journey improved by timely and appropriate referral to DFV services
  • Improved navigation and ease of access for DFV system for general practices and patients
  • Increased understanding by general practice of the health impacts of DFV in the short and long term
  • Increase in patients who actively seek out support from a general practice
