Summary This study aims to evaluate association of domestic violence and cognition in Australian women – a twenty year follow-up study.
Project description: Women are more likely than men to experience various forms of violence. One if four Australian women experience physical or sexual assault from a current or former partner (Australian Bureau of Statistics, 2012), and since the age of 15 years, one in three women has experienced physical violence (Cox, 2015). Women are also over two times more likely than men to experience elder abuse (Boldy et al, 2002). This project will examine the association between experiences of domestic violence and later life cognition in women.
The main opportunities in this project are
- Working with a large dataset spanning over 20 years from an internationally renowned cohort
- Working with an internationally recognised research team
- You will also have the opportunity for publication
This project would suit a student with an interest in women’s health.
