Strangulation Resources

Strangulation is an under-reported form of assault and people may not disclose that they have been strangled.

It is a term that is not always widely understood and people may tell their clinician, doctor or nurse instead that they have been choked. When asking about a history of strangulation, it is important to ask about any form of pressure applied to the neck.

Strangulation is commonly seen as an intimate partner assault. An intimate partner is a person with whom you have has a close personal or sexual relationship.

Yarrow Place has developed a strangulation assessment resource for clinicians and health professionals, about the care and management of women who have experienced strangulation, as well as a range of resources for consumers.
