This program is intended to increase knowledge of the appropriate roles of health care providers in addressing current and/or historic domestic and sexual abuse in the health care setting.  This program will familiarize participants with current standards of care that apply to screening, intervention and documentation of abuse.  Primary and secondary screening methods and barriers to effective screening and intervention will be examined.  Health indicators of abuse will be discussed.  Accurate documentation and coding will be reviewed.  The importance of Collaborative Community Responses that include health care providers, advocates, law enforcement and mental health will be considered.
