FUSQUINE, Rafaela Serrano; SOUZA, Yasmin Alves de  and  CHAGAS, Aucely Corrêa Fernandes. Knowledge and conducts of health professionals about the violence against women. Rev. Psicol. Saúde [online]. 2021, vol.13, n.1, pp. 113-124. ISSN 2177-093X.

Introduction: The violence against women causes an increase in the demand for health services that are fundamental to recognize the situation of violence through clinical analysis and reception. Objective: To analyze the knowledge of health professionals in primary care about the violence against women, and to verify their conduct during care. Methods: Cross-sectional quantitative study, carried out with thirty health professionals of a basic health unit, through a questionnaire composed of questions of personal and professional data and understanding about domestic violence. Results and discussion: Most interviewees deny previous knowledge about domestic violence, which directly interferes with the quality of care. Low professional training creates uncertainty about their notification duties and reporting suspected cases. Conclusion: It is necessary to keep professionals trained and able to act in cases of violence against women, promoting the well-being of the victim, family, and community.

Keywords : violence against woman; primary health care; health professionals.
