Repérage et prise en charge des femmes victimes de violences : identification des besoins et actions menées dans la Manche

Abstract : Purpose: Our goals are to assess both public and general practitioner knowledge on the awareness and prevention channels implemented by the Manche Department - particularly through the local protocol fighting against domestic violence (DV) - and to identify possible areas of improvement, especially regarding screening. Methods: Prospective quantitative study conducted based on two questionnaires. One addressed to every woman admitted into the emergency services of three medical centers and the other to every GP in the Manche Department (191). Results: Out of 193 replies from women, only 37% know of a domestic violence victim reception center, 22% of awareness campaigns, of which only 8% consider them to be effective. 15% claim they have been questioned about possible DV in the emergency room. Out of 50 replies from GPs (26%), only 34% reckon they have a good understanding of DV victim care while 94% admit to having faced such situations in the past. 66% deem the systematic nature of screening not to be useful. Discussion: Women’s lack of knowledge about the victim’s care network, as demonstrated in our study, makes it necessary to support them through information and training of professionals. GPs are aware of their missions but still seem hardly invested: a taboo still hindering systematic screening implementation. Conclusion: Shaking up the established decorum is fundamental to make way for the implementation of systematic screening by GPs, in order to both improve DV victims’ care and develop measures of facilitated complaint filing.
