Davis, Ruth E.; Harsh, Kenetta E.
Journal of Professional Nursing, v17 n6 p313-20 Nov-Dec 2001
A women's shelter and hospital emergency department collaborated on a universal screening process for domestic violence. Implementation barriers included lack of time, space, and privacy; more serious barriers were nurses' personal feelings and lack of information about domestic violence. Interdisciplinary preservice and inservice training were advocated. (Contains 41 references.) (SK)
