Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a major public health concern that affects 4 to 6 million relationships each year in the United States. Victims of IPV experience devastating and life-changing physical, emotional, relational and financial consequences that often continue to affect them even after the abuse has stopped. The goal of this seminar is to equip healthcare providers with the knowledge and resources necessary to provide services to abused women and men, and to allow them the opportunity to become more comfortable with screening their patients.
