The first publication from the International collaboration on intimate partner violence (IPV)!

FICEBO is thrilled to announce the publication of this protocol paper, which also marks the launch of the FINTERCEPT project.

We are obviously very proud to be included in an international collaboration led by the world-renown MacOrtho (Dept. of Orthopaedics and Traumatology at McMaster University, Hamilton, Canada).
In the original PRAISE-1 study (Prevalence of abuse and intimate partner violence surgical evaluation, PRAISE), published in The Lancet in 2014the PRAISE Investigators found that 1 in 6 women attending fracture clinics self-reported a history IPV in the past year.

The PRAISE-2 study aims to build upon the knowledge gained from conducting the PRAISE-1 prevalence study. The objective of this prospective pilot study of 250 women with fractures is to determine the feasibility of a large multinational cohort study that will examine surgical outcomes among those injured women who report, or do not report, a history of abuse.

FICEBO researcher, PhD student Elisa Hackenberg took part in the patient collection for PRAISE-2.

We will soon add details about our FINTERCEPT project on IPV, please come back to learn more!
