We’re sorry. This course is temporarily disabled for an important update.

This course will be discontinued on October 31, 2014, because a new version of it (CMEZ08 Domestic Violence in Adults and Children) is now available.

The goal of this program is to provide health professionals with current information about the identification and management of victims of domestic violence or intimate-partner violence (IPV). After you study the information provided, you will be able to —

  • Define physical, emotional, and sexual abuse in intimate-partner violence.
  • Recognize signs of possible emotional, physical, or sexual abuse in adults, teens, children, and the elderly.
  • Identify the importance of direct and indirect questioning in screening all patients for abuse.
  • Describe at least two assessment observations that are integral when charting on injuries that may have been sustained through intimate-partner violence
  • Recognize that a judgmental attitude when approaching a possible victim of abuse may prevent that person from divulging intimate-partner violence, which could be an underlying cause of their injury or illness.
  • Discuss that domestic violence occurs in relationships from all socioeconomic backgrounds, ethnicities, and in same sex relationships.

Educational Gap: Health professionals are not able to identify and treat domestic violence.

This course was reviewed and approved by Stephen Wheeler, MD, representing the University of Louisville School of Medicine Continuing Health Sciences Education.

This course will be updated or discontinued on or before 10/31/2014
