The health system costs of women who experience domestic violence.


Our project investigates the health services used by women who experience domestic violence and the corresponding health system costs of these services. The health system costs refer to government-funded expenditure through Medicare and relate to both in-patient hospital and out-of-hospital care (such as general practitioner visits). We will also consider costs through the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme. The results will be used to inform health policy and domestic violence services to ultimately better support affected women.
