Domestic Violence

The University of Louisville offers an online domestic violence course for physicians and nurses. Featuring Dr. William Smock, with whom many of you are familiar, the course consists of two videos and accompanying handouts. Participants can then opt to pay $25 to take the online test to receive CE credits. Total time to complete the course is estimated at approximately 3 hours.

The course is approved for 3.0 Category 1 credits in the AMA Physician’s Recognition Award; nurses can recieve 3.6 contact hours. Please note, some of the content is Kentucky-specific, and does satisfy KY state requirements for domestic violence continuing education.

By the way, Dr. Smock is co-editor of one of my go-to forensic texts. If you don’t own it, you should.
