Abstract

Intimate partner violence (IPV) affects women worldwide, and is addressable in the health care setting not only via screening, but also through provider-based counseling and referral to legal or social services, as appropriate. We conducted a study in Pennsylvania (USA) examining factors associated with receipt of IPV screening and women's perceptions of counseling discussions as a strategic response. We found that women with past-year IPV were more likely to receive screening (aOR: 2.0, 95%CI: 1.2,3.5) and to consider counseling discussions to be a strategic response to IPV exposure (aOR: 2.7, 95%CI: 1.008,7.2) than women with a more distant history of IPV. Scholars and clinicians may learn that, especially for women with a recent history of IPV, screening may provide a conduit to meaningful counseling discussions and referrals that women view as a helpful strategy in responding to IPV.
