Domestic violence is an epidemic that rages throughout our society.
Despite its ovewhelming incidence and prevalence, this abuse goes unrecognized and unaddressed in the majority of health care settings.

Improved awareness through education at all levels and protocols will help interrupt the cycle of intergenerational learned violence.
Without intervention, domestic violence is perpetuated and escalates.
