Description: The late 20th century witnessed a significant shift in how the medical community responds to victims of domestic violence. Once a “private matter” that doctors shied away from, domestic violence became recognized as a public health crisis requiring serious medical attention. This change came as a result of the tireless efforts of reformers within the medical profession, a substantial number of whom were nurses. In this talk, Dr. Catherine Jacquet will focus on the work of pioneer nurses who made it their life’s work to properly identify and treat victims of violence and to prevent further harm to them. In so doing these nurses were critical figures in reforming a once negligent medical system and, ultimately, improving the lives of thousands of women nationwide.

Dr. Jacquet’s lecture coincides with the opening of Confronting Violence, Improving Women’s Lives, a new special display curated by her, which will open in the NLM History of Medicine reading room on Monday, September 14, accompanied by a web site and traveling banner exhibition.

Abstract: (CIT): The late 20th century witnessed a significant shift in how the medical community responds to victims of domestic violence. Once a "private matter" that doctors shied away from, domestic violence became recognized as a public health crisis requiring serious medical attention. This change came as a result of the tireless efforts of reformers within the medical profession, a substantial number of whom were nurses. In this talk, Dr. Catherine Jacquet will focus on the work of pioneer nurses who made it their life's work to properly identify and treat victims of violence and to prevent further harm to them. In so doing these nurses were critical figures in reforming a once negligent medical system and, ultimately, improving the lives of thousands of women nationwide. Dr. Jacquet's lecture coincides with the opening of Confronting Violence, Improving Women's Lives, a new special display curated by her, which will open in the NLM History of Medicine reading room on Monday, September 14, accompanied by a web site and traveling banner exhibition.
