Pathfinder is a pilot project run by a consortium of 5 expert partners with the aim of establishing comprehensive health practice in relation to domestic abuse and wider issues related to Violence Against Women & Girls in acute hospital trusts, mental health trusts and community-based IRIS programmes in GP practices. The project will be evaluated by Cardiff University.
Working with health stakeholders across 8 UK sites to: identify and share good practice; turn guidance into practice; provide interventions where needed and link parts of the health economy to each other.
Linking local specialist services to health for a coordinated community response.
Sharing learning & guiding national dissemination of good practice to inform future policy work and data collection.
Developing a publicly available “toolkit” which will enable others across the country to follow a roadmap to achieve a model response to domestic abuse in health settings.
