Abstract

This cross-sectional study examined women's and men's reported experience of intimate partner violence in general practice in the greater Dublin region. A high prevalence of reported experience of controlling behaviour and violent incidents was found. Although the reported prevalence of both was higher in men, women were more likely to have reported fear of a partner and a severe level of violence.

CONCLUSION:

The findings demonstrate that intimate partner violence is a major problem among the men and women surveyed.
