EXTERNALLY FUNDED RESEARCH PROJECTS
Family violence data platform
Victoria is developing a comprehensive and coordinated primary prevention data platform to drive evidence, outcomes and monitoring in family violence prevention.
The first phase of the work, now concluded, involved the development of a conceptual framework to guide the selection of data indicators that are relevant and can be drawn from reliable data sources.
The second key phase – focused on the acquisition of data and build of the dashboard – is now well underway. Collection of data is being progressed against 21 indicators guided by Victoria’s Primary Prevention Outcomes Framework. Respect Victoria is working closely with stakeholders to test iterations of the data platform to ensure that it is fit for purpose, and that all data are contextualised through accompanying narrative to assist users with interpretation.
The third and final phase of the project will see the finalisation of the data platform and initial promotion and support of uptake by policymakers, researchers and academics in the first half of 2021. Arrangements will be put in place for maintenance, ongoing growth and development of the platform.
