Screening for Domestic Violence

Hope everyone has had a lovely holiday, thus far. I’m back in the office for the week (and actually at home for 2 entire weeks before the travel crazy begins anew), slogging through the emails and voicemails. Plenty of interesting stuff showed up in my inbox last week while I was on vacation, so I will try and get it posted throughout the week. Beginning with this one, from JWI:

The National Alliance to End Domestic Abuse is hosting a webinar, presented by Dr. Jacqueline Campbell, Screening for Domestic Violence: The New Healthcare Regulation’s Impact on the Medical Profession and the Domestic Violence Practitioner. The session will be held January 12th from noon to 1:30 pm ET. I will be teaching all day that day, so I can’t attend, but will be interested in hearing how it is, should any readers care to report back.

From the site:

Routine screening for domestic violence and brief counseling was recommended by the Institute of Medicine and will be implemented as part of the affordable health care act roll out in 2012! Join Jacquelyn Campbell on Thursday January 12, 2012 from Noon to 1:30 pm EST for a discussion on impact, implementation and the exciting new opportunities for advocates to collaborate with healthcare professionals in a variety of settings.
