Based on these recommendations, and the newly acquired funds, the IPP identified, purchased and distributed, in collaboration with its community partners, the following materials to reduce violence against women in Georgia: Educational videos on temporary protective orders were distributed to Nurse Mangers in all 159 Georgia Counties and 19 Health Districts to utilize in trainings and seminars.
The tapes, obtained from the Georgia Commission on Family Violence, were designed to increase the nurses’ knowledge of services available to victims of domestic and sexual assault, and to enable them to direct these women to alternatives that can help reduce their exposure to violence.
These cards will be distributed to potential survivors through community partners that are in frequent contact with them such as law enforcement, hospital and emergency personnel, and shelters.
