Ask, Validate, Document, Refer (AVDR) Tutorial for Dentists

General Material
Training Tools

The Ask, Validate, Document, Refer (AVDR) Tutorial for Dentists video (on CD) provides a brief, interactive learning experience to help dentists and dental students respond to the challenging problem of domestic violence. The 15-minute tutorial provides a case study demonstrating how to conduct the AVDR intervention-steps that can be used by dentists and other oral health care professionals as part of a simple, yet effective response to domestic violence. Two controlled trials have demonstrated that this brief tutorial prepares dentists and dental students to help their patients who are victims of domestic violence.
