Paper examines clinical and policy implications of intimate partner violence
Date:2/12/2014

(Boston) --Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a serious public health concern for all, however women who experience IPV are more likely to sustain injury and report adverse health consequences.

"Correlates of IPV, traumatic brain injury and homelessness, are common among this group. While research on women veterans' health and IPV is emergent, evidence suggests that IPV results in multiple health sequelae and increased healthcare utilization," she said.

A number of targeted interventions and treatments are available for women veterans who experience IPV, including evidence-based mental health services. Gerber believes the VA is well positioned to implement screening programs for WV to facilitate referral to needed services and treatments available both within and outside its facilities. "As the population of women veterans expands, future research will be needed to determine best practices; many avenues of inquiry exist. Women veterans are strong and resilient. It is crucial t
