MacOrtho is pleased to announce that the Prospective Abuse and Intimate Partner Violence Surgical Evaluation (PRAISE-2) study reached its enrollment target of 50 patients this week! We would like to thank all collaborators for their contributions to this milestone and for their continued support in this very important trial.
1 in 6 women in fracture clinics have experienced intimate partner violence (IPV) in the past year, and 1 in 50 women present to fracture clinics with IPV-related injuries. Orthopaedic health care professionals are in a good position to identify women experiencing IPV and preventing future abuse. There is currently no information on how IPV experiences affect orthopaedic outcomes. Additionally, women with musculoskeletal injuries may experience changing relationship dynamics that affect IPV patterns.
