Course Summary:

Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) or domestic violence is extremely common affecting women, and sometimes men, of all ages, ethnicities and sexual preferences. IPV can have physical, mental and emotional short and long term consequences. Effective screening and assessment is key in identifying the abuse and supporting the victim to access resources to interrupt the cycle of violence. This course provides a toolkit with detailed information for public health providers to become more knowledgeable in screening, documentation and management practices and patient resources for domestic abuse.
