Abuse and violenceWorking with our patients in general practice

Abuse and violence: working with our patients in general practice, 4th edition, (White Book) was developed by general practitioners (GPs) and experts to ensure that the content is the most valuable and useful for health practitioners.

The manual provides an easy and practical resource and was based on the best available evidence in February 2014. This included 2014 Cochrane systematic reviews on advocacy; 2013 Cochrane systematic reviews on screening for intimate partner violence; 2013 World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines for health professionals based on systematic reviews and international consensus on intimate partner and sexual violence; international consensus intimate partner violence guidelines; 2013 randomised controlled trial evidence from general practice; a 2006 meta-synthesis of qualitative studies of what women experiencing intimate partner violence expect from health practitioners and a 2009 systematic review on child abuse interventions.
