1. Summary

Abstract for the general public

Domestic violence is highly prevalent, poorly detected and under reported in Emergency Departments. It is associated with a high incidence of subsequent harm if not detected. The study will explore current attitudes held by practitioners in a regional emergency setting and how these views may hinder domestic violence detection.
