Intimate Partner Violence clinical trials at UCSD
1 research study open to eligible people
open to eligible females ages 18-100
Up to 20% of women Veterans (WV) using VHA primary care experience past-year intimate partner violence (IPV), which contributes to numerous physical and mental health conditions, including suicidality. Despite national recommendations to screen WVs for IPV, there is low adoption of IPV screening programs in primary care. In response, VHA is spreading IPV screening programs in Women's Health Model 1 and Model 2 primary care clinics, where the majority of WV VHA primary care patients receive care. The systematic and effective implementation of IPV screening programs within primary care clinics is expected to enhance care for WVs as well as improve access to, and timeliness of, IPV-related care. Given the high prevalence of IPV among WVs and its significant negative health effects, successful implementation of IPV screening programs is expected to reduce morbidity among WV VHA patients. This stepped wedge hybrid II implementation/effectiveness study will assess efforts to implement routine IPV screening for WV VHA patients.
