Our Hawaiian Community General Health Safety Card: Is Your Relationship Affecting Your Health? was adapted by the Queens Medical Center and The Domestic Violence Action Center, both located in Honolulu, Hawaii, to better reach their multilingual and multicultural clients. This card is available as a PDF in English, Hawaiian, Chinese, Marshallese, Tagalog, and Chuukese.
This 4-panel double-sided tool folds up to the size of a business card (3.5" x 2") and was designed for women receiving health care services. The card helps women recognize how their relationship impacts their health as well as the lives of their children and provides information on safety planning. The safety card lists specific health problems that may be the result of chronic stress from an abusive relationship. It also offers women who are in abusive relationships guidance on talking with their children. The backside of the card refers people to the National Domestic Violence Hotline and Hawaii region-specific DV, shelter, and sexual abuse hotline numbers for further support. This tool is most effective when placed in private areas such as restrooms and exam rooms and may be given to patients routinely as part of regular visits, or upon disclosure of abuse.
Available only as a PDF in English, Hawaiian, Chinese, Marshallese, Tagalog, and Chuukese.
