Abstract

The leading risk factor of morbidity and mortality in Victorian women aged between 15-45 years is intimate partner violence (IPV). Paramedics are often the first point of contact for victims of IPV and they have the advantage of potentially identifying and reporting IPV. This article summarises the literature regarding pre-hospital provider knowledge of IPV.
