Improving the health and health care of women who experience intimate partner violence (IPV) is one of the goals of our program of research. Currently, our Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) New Emerging Team is conducting research into the health, social, and economic effects of IPV on women in the early period after they have left an abusive partner. In this paper, we describe how we are transferring knowledge from our previous and current research to develop an intervention to promote the health and quality of life of women who have left an abusive partner. The earlier phases of our program of research and intervention studies with women who have experienced IPV and women who are marginalized in other ways point in similar directions with respect to the development of a comprehensive intervention to improve the health and quality of life of women who have left abusive partners. Drawing on these different sources of evidence, we have proposed a health advocacy intervention for women post-leaving that is intended to reduce intrusion from multiple sources and to build women's knowledge, skills, and capacities. The specific goals, activities, outcomes, and process principles described in the model provide a starting point for engaging in meaningful dialogue with stakeholders as we move towards testing the intervention.
