Table 2 Secondary outcome measures

From: Protocol for a randomised controlled trial of a web-based healthy relationship tool and safety decision aid for women experiencing domestic violence (I-DECIDE)

Outcome Measure Description & purpose Hypothesis
Actions for safety and wellbeing weave service use & activities questionnaire (modified)a These questions drawn from the weave study [11] ask women what activities or services she has used over the past 6 months. If she answers ‘yes’ to any items, a second question drops down asking whether it was helpful (yes/no). A higher mean number of actions for safety and wellbeing that are helpful than the comparison group, at 6 months post-baseline.
Self-care activities questionnaire1 These questions are a modified list of self-care activities derived from the Diamond study on depression [36]. Women are asked if they have started doing, or increased the frequency, of any of the listed self-care activities. If she answers ‘yes’ to any items, a second question drops down asking whether it was helpful (yes/no).
Fear of partner Visual Analogue scale 0-100 The participant will be asked to rate their current level of fear of their partner or ex-partner, on a sliding scale from 0 (not at all afraid) to 10 (very afraid). A lower mean fearfulness score than the comparison group, as measured on a visual analogue scale of current level of fear of partner (0–100), at 12 months post-baseline
