The project will support two phases of the project. Phase 1 will comprise of a discussion paper with a comparison of various domestic homicide review initiatives with a risk factor and prevention focus, identifying the literature on themes and trends around domestic homicide. The discussion paper will also discuss gaps and potential inconsistent responses from the following themes: awareness and prevention; victim services intervention; and, vulnerable populations. Phase 2 will be the hosting of a two-day event, bringing together researchers, professionals, policy makers and community representatives to: 1) discuss what domestic violence death reviews can contribute to further research and policy in regards to risk assessment and management; 2) discuss and evaluate the value of interdisciplinary collaboration as well as academic, professional and community collaboration in risk assessment and management; 3) synthesize the latest research on the role of domestic violence risk assessment and risk management in prevention and intervention, both nationally and internationally; 4) discuss gaps in services to victims around domestic homicide prevention and innovative programs that have been created to address these gaps; and 5) document the risk factors identified to date through scholarly research of risk factors, both nationally and internationally, as well as by domestic violence death review committees in Ontario and other countries. The discussion paper will generate expert opinion and advice regarding the development of a domestic homicide review initiative and a national database on the trends and risk factors involved with domestic violence related deaths. The findings of the think tank and final discussion paper will be distributed to forum participants and key stakeholders.
