A recent issue of JAMA highlights 2 studies that examined how physicians might treat or help prevent violence against women. If one only glanced at the results, they might seem like bad news. But a further reading should provide us with optimism about how we might address this difficult issue through the health care system.
One study was a research letter that looked at 3-year follow-up of a randomized trial of screening for partner violence (http://bit.ly/1J3XC1j). The United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends universal screening of women of reproductive age (http://1.usa.gov/1J3XZce), but others have argued that there’s little evidence that doing so has much of an effect (http://bit.ly/1USZlvI).
