Dilemas del personal médico ante la violencia de pareja en México Dilemmas of healthcare providers towards domestic violence in Mexico

Abstract

Se realizó un estudio cualitativo con 30 médicas/os y enfermeras/os del sector público en México, con el objetivo de conocer en profundidad las concepciones y prácticas frente a la violencia doméstica. Una encuesta reciente puso en evidencia que la mayoría de los profesionales de salud no conocen la Norma Oficial Mexicana que establece los criterios de atención de estos casos. Los resultados de las entrevistas evidencian que no existen diferencias entre los profesionales a nivel de la atención, y que además la atención resulta inadecuada. Por otra parte, hemos constatado la existencia de un repertorio de significados sociales en torno a la violencia que provienen de la tradición cultural y que dificultan una adecuada atención a este problema.This qualitative study of 30 physicians and nurses from the Mexican public health system aimed to understand their concepts and practices concerning domestic violence. A recent survey showed that most health professionals were unaware of the official criteria and procedures for dealing with cases of domestic violence. Our in-depth interviews failed to show substantial differences between professionals according to level of care, and that treatment was generally inadequate. We also observed a repertoire of ingrained social meanings among the medical staff concerning violence (derived from their own cultural traditions), hindering more effective responses to the problem
