Safety and Effectiveness of Computer Screening for Intimate Partner Violence
Not Provided

The purpose of this study is to see if using a computer kiosk to screen men and women for intimate partner violence victimization and perpetration is safe and effective. We hypothesize that screening will not result in any adverse events.

All eligible ER patients will be screened during study times for IPV victimization and perpetration. All victims will be followed at 1 week and 3 months to determine any adverse outcomes. Perpetrators will only be followed in the ED for adverse outcomes after screening. All patients who disclose IPV victimization or perpetration will get a list of community resources. Victims will be asked at follow up what resources they used.
