If, When and How to Ask the Questions: Assessing Screening Approaches to Identifying Woman Abuse in Health Care Settings.
This is an integrated, multi-disciplinary program of research which looks at the effectiveness of screening in reducing violence and improving the quality of life for women and their children. There are a number of individual projects to address these objectives.
It is funded by the Ontario Women’s Health Council, and began in March 2003.
The program is headquartered at the Offord Centre for Child Studies, Department of Psychiatry & Behavioural Neurosciences at McMaster University.
