Since 2000, hospitals have been implementing a national program aimed at increasing the rate of identifying victims of domestic violence by hospital staff and providing primary care by introducing them to specially trained social workers. The social workers discuss the women's situation with them, assess the level of danger, support their motivation to change the situation, and give them information about their rights and the services available. Where possible, the social workers and the women themselves draw up a post-discharge plan for further care in the community.
