Abstract

BACKGROUND: Abusive relationships are associated with several demographic factors and many clinical problems in women. However, practices often do not screen for abuse. METHODS: This is a descriptive study of 1526 women aged 19 to 69 years who completed a health survey in 31 office practices. The 53-item survey included a question designed to screen for an abusive relationship. Our analysis compared self-reported measures of symptoms (N=13) and functional limitations (n=6) of women who had abusive relationships with those who did not. We also examined the utility of using a constellation of clinical problems to identify risk for abuse. RESULTS: Women in abusive relationships were more likely to be poor (37% vs 14%; P
