The materials include:

  • Just Ask. This free reference guide and screening tool outlines eight steps to help you assess patients for abuse.
  • Resource Cards. These small cards list phone numbers for shelters and other support agencies, and they may be placed in special cardholders that hang on the wall of patient restrooms. They also are available in Spanish for central Indiana only. Cards are free to members and cost $7.70 for 100 cards and $6.70 for each cardholder for nonmembers.
  • Domestic Violence InfoGuide. This 24-page reference guide details steps a victim can take to leave an abusive relationship. The free booklet explains how to develop a safety plan and file a protective order. It includes a statewide list of shelters and other supportive organizations.
  • Screening Forms. Documentation is vital when treating a domestic violence victim. This form provides a body diagram to help you record injuries, along with a safety assessment tool. The online copy-ready form is free.
