|Title:||History of Domestic Violence and Physical Health in Midlife||Contributor(s):||Loxton, Deborah (author); Schofield, Margot Jocelyn (author); Hussain, Rafat (author); Mishra, Gita (author)||Publication Date:||2006||DOI:||10.1177/1077801206291483||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/4748||Abstract:||The association between domestic violence and physical health in middle-aged Australian women is investigated via a cross-sectional survey of 14,100 women (45 to 50 years old) who responded to the first Australian Longitudinal Study on Women's Health survey. After adjustment for demographic and health behavior characteristics and menopause status in multivariate analyses, various physical conditions (allergies or breathing problems, pain or fatigue, bowel problems, vaginal discharge, eyesight and hearing problems, low iron, asthma, bronchitis or emphysema, cervical cancer) were associated with domestic violence. The results highlight the link between health and domestic violence in middle-aged women and underscore the need for health professionals to take a full social history from women presenting with physical symptoms.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Violence Against Women, 12(8), p. 715-731||Publisher:||Sage Publications Inc||Place of Publication:||New York, United States of America||ISSN:||1077-8012||Field of Research (FOR):||111799 Public Health and Health Services not elsewhere classified||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO):||920507 Womens Health||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 200
