Intimate partner violence is widespread, especially among women seeking medical care. It affects women’s overall well-being, any children involved and society by increasing cost of health care. In this model, we describe how we can help by screening for abuse, empowering and educating the victims, and referring them to specialized domestic violence counselors.
