Description

The University of Texas School of Public Health, with the University of South Carolina, and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro are conducting a demonstration project. In collaboration with researchers and clinical and intimate partner violence (IPV) service providers, the universities will help design and implement culturally-competent, clinic-based, IPV screening and services for women seeking health care from clinics.

The study includes both primary and secondary prevention interventions and will target a rural, low-income population. As part of this health-focused intervention, a follow-up study of IPV victims and their children will be conducted to determine the long-term impact of the intervention on violence and health.

Goals of the study are to improve the health, well-being, and safety of women who experience the effects of IPV and its negative effects on their children; to evaluate the cost effectiveness of the intervention; and to test the conceptual model for how IPV affects health outcomes.
