Examining the long-term impacts of abuse on women's health across the life course


Experiencing violence or abuse can lead to negative health outcomes. There are many forms of violence and abuse that women may experience across their life course, including childhood abuse, intimate partner violence and elder abuse. While some women have never experienced such trauma, others have experienced multiple forms of abuse throughout their lives. This project aims to examine the relationship between different patterns of abuse and health outcomes, and to identify the factors that mitigate or exacerbate the impact of abuse on health.
