Evaluation of the Domestic Violence Homicide Prevention Demonstration Initiative (DVHPDI)

DVHPDI is a multi-site evaluation that employs implementation science techniques to evaluate the implementation and outcomes of two promising practices to prevent domestic violence related homicides. Utilizing administrative data; longitudinal interviews with victims; and qualitative interviews with law enforcement, domestic violence service providers, and victims, the evaluation seeks to inform the field on the successes and areas for enhancement at the individual and systems level for these services. The evaluation also builds the capacity of community agencies to sustain and continue the evaluation strategies established.
