How can primary care providers identify patients exposed to intimate partner violence? EVIDENCE-BASED ANSWER: Short, self-administered, intimate partner violence (IPV) screens such as the Abuse Assessment Screen (AAS), the Hurt, Insult, Threaten and Scream (HITS), the Woman Abuse Screening Tool (WAST), and the Partner Violence Screen (PVS) can identify primary care patients who have experienced IPV, with sensitivities ranging from 30% to 100%. The AAS has the best-reported sensitivity (93%–94%) (SOR: B, systematic review of limited-quality diagnostic cohort studies). For pregnant women, the AAS is nearly 2.5 times more likely to find domestic violence than standard care (SOR: B, systematic review of cohort studies).
