Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a serious and costly health
problem that affects millions of Americans and costs 5.8 billion
dollars every year in medical care. Women, the most common
victims of IPV, access health care over the course of their lives
for routine and preventive care, as well as for trauma and abuse
related conditions. Health care providers are uniquely placed
to assess for IPV and can play a significant role in helping their
patients access safety. This workshop is designed to create an
awareness about the importance of screening and responding
to intimate partner violence in the health care setting.
