Program Type: Resources - Information or materials that might help develop a program/project in a community but can not be defined as a Best Practice, Promising Practice, or Local Effort.

Description:
Through collaboration with one another and with experts in community-based health care delivery and domestic violence, the pilot sites will develop culturally appropriate prevention strategies and resources for health care providers and victims. The sites also will increase awareness of domestic violence as a public health issue, promoting public education and outreach within Native communities. The pilot sites will serve as models to other AI/AN clinics and hospitals across the country. The materials created by the sites will be distributed to other I/T/U facilities. Resources and protocol developed by the Pilot Project will be available to other facilities, and Project members can provide training or technical support to health care providers at other clinics.
