violence and health-related consequences as the technology provides a safe and flexible space for the target population. However, the evidence is unclear.

In this publication, the goal of the review is to examine the effect of eHealth interventions compared with standard care on reducing IPV, depression, and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) among women exposed to IPV.

Inclusion of women has begun!

Month: April 2021

During the last couple of months, we have been working hard to make the final tweaks on our STOP intervention developed to support and empower women exposed to IPV in order to launch the service in our two sites in Denmark and Spain. Also, we have provided training programmes for the dedicated staff to conduct screening and video counselling with the pregnant women.

In March, the STOP project launched the eHealth intervention and in both Denmark and Spain, women now participate in the screening for IPV. Already, a number of women have scored above the threshold indicating violence in their partnerships and have been offered to participate in the STOP project.

Thus, we are in the process of collecting the first experiences with our video counselling and safety planning service. We look forward to sharing our experiences with you along the way.
