An Assessment of Minnesota's Health Care and Public Health Response to Violence Against Women

General Material
Published Date
July, 2003

This assessment study found that although there are guidelines for health care practitioners to address violence against women, compliance to the guidelines varies. The assessment also found that collaboration between health care agencies and advocacy agencies affect the services provided to patients who experience domestic violence, and that health care institutions need more resources and sustained organizational commitment to address the problem of domestic violence.
