Violence-related injuries registration by hospitals

Violence-related injuries registration by hospitals

Process evaluation of the pilot project 'Preventive approach to violence' (full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

Since 2012, Amsterdam has started the pilot project ‘Preventive approach to violence’ where hospitals, municipality, police and other parties cooperate with the objective to reduce the number of victims of violence. For the pilot project, seven hospitals in the Amsterdam region register data of patients who attend the emergency department with violence-related injuries.
This research concerns a process evaluation of the pilot. The research on which this process evaluation is based, involves the period from June 2013 until June 2014 inclusive. The key question in the process evaluation is to what extent the procedure is implemented as intended, and which adjustments are possibly needed to optimize the implementation process and to measure the effects.
