Taking an ACEs History -- Who's Doing It and How?

If you're doing ACEs histories, please do a short blog post or contact one of the community managers so that we can do so for you.

Hi, has anybody got any links to peer-reviewed journal articles where an individual's ACE score/questionnaire is used to inform practice?  I know it's fairly common practice now in some areas to enquire about ACEs, but I struggle to find any papers describing how that information is then used.  Would be good to find some examples where, say, a score of four leads to a more targeted intervention or response, for instance.

I have my doubts about the use of the ACE questionnaire for individuals, but I do see it being rolled out in various ways with no evaluation of whether it actually has any tangible benefit. I thought rather than just getting into debates about it on Twitter (which happened when I posted this:, which are fascinating but not of real practical use, I thought I'd try and do a proper, objective systematic review of the available evidence.  But, despite ACE screening being rolled out quite commonly, I've really struggled to find any studies to even include in my review so far.  Quite a few in the grey literature, but very few peer-reviewed ones.  Maybe that's an important finding in itself.
