Diagnosing violence

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Physical violence and its manifestations are frequently found in the medical consultation: the battered wife, the abused child, or the aftermath of a drunken altercation that needs to be sutured back together again. Just as common, though less visible to the eye, are anthropological and sociological concepts of violence. If not sought out, they are missed, and can have a dramatic impact on the health and wellbeing of our patients.
