November-December Nursing Research News
Dec 5, 2013 2:03:00 PM EST

nursing schoolSafe Haven for Abuse Victims a Life or Death Matter. Housing availability can mean the difference between survival and further abuse or death for women who have survived intimate partner violence (IPV), according to professor Nancy Glass, PhD, MPH, RN, nursing doctoral graduate Jessica Draughon, PhD, MSN, RN, senior research program coordinator Amber Clough, MSW, and a colleague. Based on in-depth interviews with IPV survivors, the study confirms the critical nature of safe housing and identifies significant barriers to it. One is a disconnect between local housing and domestic violence service systems. Over 2 million injuries are attributed to IPV annually. For some, the drive to escape abuse results in creative but ultimately temporary solutions, such as living in a car or an abandoned building. “From a public health perspective, IPV survivors need safe housing as a first step in recovery. We can and must do better,” Glass says. “Funding, policy, and service delivery must be restructured to better meet these survivors’ complex physical, behavioral, environmental, and social needs. With growing numbers of IPV survivors likely to be identified through [Affordable Care Act] women’s health screening requirements, the time is now for action.” [“‘Having housing made everything else possible’: Affordable, safe and stable housing for women survivors of violence,” Qualitative Social Work, published online September 20, 2013.]...Click here to read more.

Fewer than 10 percent who would benefit from alcohol treatment actually get care. Associate professor Deborah S.

Finnell says, “Alcohol use shouldn’t be about shame and blame. It’s a chronic disorder, like diabetes or hypertension. We nurses can help these individuals understand and manage their illness, rather than to hide from it.” [“Providing information about the neurobiology of alcohol use disorders to close the ‘referral to treatment gap.’ ” Nursing Clinics of North America, September 2013.]...Click here to read more.
