Journal of Clinical Ethics 19 (4):316-320 (2008)

Investigations and commentaries on domestic violence and its sequelae have been featured in several recent medical journals. For discussion purposes, I will highlight aspects from three of them. According to Megan Bair-Merritt and her colleagues, in a recent issue of the Journal of Pediatrics, screening for domestic abuse in a pediatric practice can uncover cases that otherwise might not be identified.1 Of the women who brought their children to a pediatric clinic at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, 23 percent disclosed that they had been victims of either emotional or physical abuse; 57 percent of the abused women indicated that at least one child had been exposed to this violent interaction.
