Summary

Family violence consultations are to be led by the Maternal and Child Health (MCH) nurse. In some cases, the MCH nurse may choose to hold a joint consultation with a family support worker, bi-cultural or Aboriginal Health Worker, and/or specialist family violence practitioner.

The family violence consultation aims to increase capacity within the MCH Service to provide greater outreach support to families. This consultation does not replace the need to ask the family violence questions at the existing Key Ages and Stages (KAS) consultations.
