       Introducing the RPMS
   IPV/DV Screening Exam Code
         GPRA (CIRS)
   Domestic Violence Indicator


 During FY 2005, the IHS will ensure that 15%
  of women between the ages of 15 and 40 are
  screened for domestic violence.

 During FY 2004, the IHS will address domestic
  violence, abuse and neglect by screening at
  least 15% of eligible women patients between
  the ages of 16-24 for domestic violence at
  direct care facilities
          Clinical Objectives

 Objective – IPV/DV Screening

 Standard – Adult females should be screened
  for domestic violence at a new encounter and
  at least annually; prenatal once each trimester
  (Source: Family Violence Prevention Fund
  National Consensus Guidelines)
                Why Screen?
 US Preventive Services Task Force (USPTF)
  acknowledges that the effectiveness of screening has
  not been validated, however, they also state that
  screening is justifiable on other grounds including:

      High prevalence of undetected abuse among female patients
      Low cost and low risk of screening
      Adverse economic and social impact of abuse
      DV is a chronic, life-threatening condition that is treatable; if
       abuse is left untreated the severity and frequency of abuse can
       worsen
               Why Screen?
 DV screening is recommended by:
      American Academy of Family Physicians
      American College of Physicians
      American Medical Associations
      American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists
      DV Screening is a JCAHO Mandate
