MARTINEZ GALIANO, Juan Miguel. Detecting and Attending to Gender Violence during Pregnancy: An unresolved matter. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.24. ISSN 1695-6141.

Aims: to determine the number of cases of gender violence (GV) that health personnel in charge of pregnancy control were aware they had attended to; to identify whether resources were available to the personnel to address this problem; to ascertain the priority these personnel assign to GV within the health system. Method: descriptive, observational study. Subjects were health personnel working in pregnancy control. A questionnaire developed by the researchers was used. Descriptive analysis of the data was made. Results: 93.10% (81) believed that they attended fewer than ten such cases a year. 95.40% (83) stated that they did not have the necessary resources to enable them to act. A mean score of 8,14 ± 1,45 out of 10 was awarded regarding prioritization. Conclusion: The personnel seemed to be aware of the problem but did not consider themselves prepared to address it.
