Abstract:Since July 2013, it will be required for general practitioners to work conform the KNMG Reporting code domestic violence and child abuse when they have a presumption of domestic violence and/or child abuse. Because of the required reporting code, general practitioners have to work in other circumstances than they potentially did before and that cause problems. This research focuses on the impeding and promoting factor for general practitioners to work conform the KNMG Reporting code domestic violence and child abuse. In order to carry out research, a survey is sent to 350 general practitioners, who were connected to the organization of all general practitioners in Twente. In total, 43 general practitioners participated (12%). There is used a previously developed questionnaire, the MIDI (meetinstrument voor Determinanten van Innovaties), to develop the questionnaire for this study. The questionnaire is based on the theory of planned behavior also. The questionnaire is developed in collaboration with two care innovation professionals and a general practitioner. The survey showed that cooperation and satisfaction of the patient and personal advantages and disadvantages of the general practitioner have a predictive value on the intention of the general practitioner to work conform the KNMG reporting code. The results showed that the following specific factors are predictors of the intention: 1) adequate knowledge about the KNMG reporting code. 2) The feeling that it has to be your own function to work conform the KNMG reporting code. 3) The certainty that a general practitioners experience through working conform the steps of the reporting code. 4). To know that if a case is coming to court, the general practitioner is in a juridical strong position. 5) The expectation that patients accept the proceedings of the general practitioners when the general practitioner is working conform the KNMG reporting code. 6) The expectation that domestic violence and child abuse will be stopped of prevented earlier when the general practitioner works conform the reporting code. When (one of these) predicting factors is high, the intention of the general practitioners to work conform the reporting code will be also higher.
