Unrecognized torture affects the health of refugees.
Minn Med. 2002 May; 85(5):35-9.MM

Abstract

Recognizing the symptoms and signs of torture and documenting their cause may be key to providing effective health care for refugees from countries where torture is known to have occurred. Generalist or primary care physicians are in a unique position to establish a trust relationship with patients, to identify potential signs and symptoms of torture, and encourage patients to talk about their experiences. With knowledge about, understanding of, and sensitivity toward torture survivors, physicians can help these patients regain their health and a sense of well-being.
