FINDINGS: Three themes were linked to women's healthcare experiences: systems-based, interpersonal and psychological issues. Poor systems of communication sometimes fail abused women, and low self-esteem and fear of stigmatisation make it difficult for women to discuss abuse. CONCLUSION: Nurses in primary care settings can do much to support women who have experienced domestic abuse.
