Seattle Pacific University students team up with WAVE for an important project.

Each year, senior nursing students from Seattle Pacific University engage in community health projects, partnering with various organizations in the greater Seattle area. One group of students worked with the WAVE Foundation to take leadership in facilitating and developing a project defined by the organization as a need of critical importance. Some allied health care professionals may not feel confident in their ability to assess and provide resources to clients experiencing domestic violence. Through research and collaboration with WAVE and other community resources, these students developed a short educational video aimed at allied health professionals who may encounter these clients. This video project provides essential assessment questions and follow-up resources to help health care professionals gain confidence in screening clients who may be at-risk for or experiencing domestic violence.
