Intimate Partner Violence, Elder Abuse, and Abuse of Vulnerable Adults: Screening
Release Date: October 2018
|Women of reproductive age|
The USPSTF recommends that clinicians screen for intimate partner violence (IPV) in women of reproductive age and provide or refer women who screen positive to ongoing support services.
See the Clinical Considerations section for more information on effective ongoing support services for IPV and for information on IPV in men.
|Older or vulnerable adults|
The USPSTF concludes that the current evidence is insufficient to assess the balance of benefits and harms of screening for abuse and neglect in all older or vulnerable adults.
See the Clinical Considerations section for suggestions for practice regarding the I statement.
