Abstract

Health care professionals increasingly encounter family violence victims, but often do not recognize the signs of abuse. A mailed survey and personal interviews with dental health care workers reveal an uncertainty about intervening when abuse is suspected. The authors examine DHCWs exposure to family violence among their patients, educational history and thoughts about intervention.
