Abstract

The aim of this systematic review is to summarize studies in different settings that used Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to address intimate partner violence (IPV). We've conducted a systematic review using PRISMA guidelines using the following databases: PubMed, CINAHL, PsycINFO, and Web of Science. Inclusion criteria were ICT-based interventions addressing IPV, focused on women. 21 studies were identified in which ICT was found to be a suitable low-cost option for screening and disclosure of IPV, as well as for preventing IPV. More research is needed to use ICT for prevention and treatment of IPV, taking consideration new ICT environments such as virtual communities.
