New Research on Women Veterans and Intimate Partner Violence

Event Date
Thursday, July 27, 2017, 01:00PM

Intimate partner violence (IPV) is associated with a wide-range of health and social impacts, especially for women. Women veterans may be at increased risk of experiencing IPV and Veterans Health Administration (VHA) facilities are now routinely screening female patients for IPV experience. This webinar will present findings from the first examination of VHA IPV screening results of nearly 9,000 female patients.  Associations with demographic and military service characteristics, mental health diagnoses, housing instability, and healthcare service utilization hold implications for understanding the scope of IPV clinical screening disclosure, risk factors associated with IPV experience, and need and opportunity for clinical intervention.
