  • The Chicago Women's Health Risk Study at a Glace


  • The Chicago Womens Health Risk Study (CWHRS) was designed to give nurses, beat officers and other primary support people information they need to know in order to help women who are experiencing violence at the hands of an intimate partner lower the risk of life-threatening injury or death. Previous research did not provide this practical information. The purpose of the CWHRS was to identify factors indicating significant danger of life-threatening injury or death in situations in which an intimate partner is physically abusing a woman. We accomplished this by conducting a study that compared longitudinal data on abused women with similar data on women who had been killed by or who killed her intimate partner.
