Determining ED staff documentation practice, awareness, and knowledge of intimate partner violence questioning and documentation tools

Domestic violence (DV) rates in smaller cities have been reported to be some of the highest in Canada. It is highly likely that emergency department staff will come across victims of intimate partner violence (IPV) in their daily practice.
