Non-fatal strangulation can cause unseen medical complications including risk of stroke and death, weeks after the injury. Victims may disclose to a range of services. Health has a pivotal role in ensuring these victims get specialised treatment and must develop sustainable collaborative inter-agency relationships to ensure pathways for clinical assessments are accessible. By exploring international best practice regarding the collaborative management of such victims, Australia’s Health responses can be bolstered and more lives saved.
