  1. Health care barriers and interventions for battered women.

    Article - En anglais

    Family violence is a major public health problem.

    Battered women present with multiple physical injuries in hospital emergency rooms, clinics, and personal physicians'offices.

    Yet, they are often not identified as battered and fail to receive appropriate treatment for the non physical effects of these events.

    Instead, only discrete physical injuries are identified.

    The authors explore the literature to identify barriers in recognizing and treating battered women.
