ABSTRACT
The article discusses the move of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) to recommend clinicians to screen women of childbearing age for intimate partner violence (IPV) and provide intervention. It states that the USPSTF concludes that screening women for IPV has moderate net benefit. It cites that the recommendation also applies to women who do not show signs or symptoms of abuse. It also mentions that effective interventions reduce violence, abuse, and physical harm for women.
