“It has been a great experience to work with the team of nurses, doctors, executive team, social workers, prevention and response to violence abuse and neglect service (PARVAN), and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Service to respond to our patients’ experience of domestic violence.”
Lesley said the team were honoured to be a finalist for the award.
“We have demonstrated that with multi-agency collaboration, innovation, leadership, and dedication we could achieve the highest international screening rates across emergency departments,” Lesley said.
“The project has scope to be implemented in all emergency departments throughout NSW.”
