Domestic violence.

Author information

Department of Family Practice, Rush Medical College, Chicago, Illinois.


Domestic violence is an enormous health care issue that primary care physicians are powerfully suited to address. Rarely, however, do primary care physicians recognize that many of the patients who regularly and routinely present to them are victims of abuse. This article is designed to empower America's front-line doctors to recognize and appropriately treat the many victims of domestic violence who currently suffer from this silent epidemic. The reader will come to understand that it is via relatively simple-to-learn techniques that physicians can significantly impact the health and well-being of their communities.
