Definition of Family and Domestic Violence
No specific definition of Family and Domestic Violence is used within this collection. Family and domestic violence is indicated by use of clinical codes within the patient record. Relies on the judgement of clinical staff who treat patients.
Aspects of FDV captured in the data are:
Relationship to Conceptual Framework for Family and Domestic Violence (Cat. No. 4529.0)
Hospitals provide monthly extracts of data on patients discharged from hospital to a central database managed by SA Health. Demographic data is collected by administrative staff in hospitals. Doctors and nurses record information on diagnoses and procedures as text in medical records. The text is translated into codes, and the codes are included in the monthly extracts.Scope / target population
All people admitted to public and private hospitals in South Australia.
Clinicians may not identify injuries as family and domestic violence related unless there is clear evidence, so the number of family and domestic violence related hospital admissions is likely to be understated in this collection.
