Data for: Healthcare seeking and engagement after sexual assault

Published: 1 Oct 2019 | Version 1 | DOI: 10.17632/m6rxc73pg6.1

Description of this data

Sexual assault (SA), affecting up to 20% of women, is associated with chronic physical and emotional health disorders. While sexual assault victims/survivors are less likely to seek healthcare, less is known about the specific barriers and facilitators in healthcare seeking and engagement. The purpose of this study was to learn the barriers and facilitators from victims/survivors. Data was collected using semi-structured interviews. Constructivist coding was used in data analysis. Barriers were: reminders of sexual assault, male healthcare providers, and loss of control with disclosures. Facilitators were healthcare providers who were empathetic, knowledgeable, and female.
