Abstract

This is a report of the reasoning related to family violence by health professionals but specifically by 241 surveyed and 9 interviewed nurses. Using survey and interviewing techniques, this study explored factors that influence clinicians' choice to intervene in family violence and compared the differences in reasoning of health professionals. Findings from both the survey and interviews are discussed. It is recommended that content about family violence be integrated in curricula and that different approaches to clinical reasoning emphasized.
