The project's goal was to assess healthcare practitioner's perceptions of intimate partner violence in healthcare. UVA surgery resident Christine Gade was able to get responses from 239 Rwandan healthcare professionals on a self-administered paper questionnaire. The survey looked at multiple factors (including questions on what constitutes IPV, their perceptions of IPV in their patient populations, why they don't ask about IPV, and beliefs about future changes). CSR staff consulted on the questionnaire draft and assisted with analysis of the results.
