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.
