This is a study at planning stage. The study aims to map and describe all intimate partner homicides perpetrated in West Sweden during the last 15 years (approx. 50 cases). The study has a special focus on the role of health care workers; had they or had they not identified intimate partner violence prior to the homicide? Could identification and prevention be enhanced and how? The project will proceed in two stages. In the first stage archive data – i.e. national registers of different kinds, police investigations, court material, social services and health care records – will be analyzed. In the second stage some cases will be selected for further and deeper understanding, via interviews with professionals as well as with family to the victim, and possibly also with the perpetrators.
