DV/IPV Sexual Assault

Health Impact of Intimate Partner Violence (+ Live IPV Course)

Did I mention that I’m doing a webinar for the Tribal Forensic Healthcare project November 3rd? It’s going to be on the health consequences of IPV, and it’ll be held from 3-4:30pm ET. As with all offerings from this project, CEUs and CMEs are available. Click through for details about the webinar and our live 3-day IPV course for clinicians:

From the site:

The health impacts of intimate partner violence (IPV) are well documented in the scientific literature.  There are a wide variety of comorbid health complaints described, ranging from chronic pain complaints to gynecological disorders to cardiac disease. Because of this, clinicians must approach the care of IPV patients as more than just the documentation of an acute episode of violence.  All healthcare providers, regardless of specialty, need to understand how experiencing violence, including IPV, impact both the short- and long-term health of patients. This session will review the state of the science regarding the health implications of IPV; explore specifically the intersection of IPV and HIV; and provide resources and tools to assist clinicians with providing comprehensive and trauma-informed care to this patient population.

Also, there’s still some room left in the live IPV examiner course we’re holding in Phoenix, November 17-19th. Kim Nash will be co-teaching that one with me. It should be a great week, so if you serve American Indian or Alaska Native patients AND you’ve completed a 40 hour SANE course, you’re eligible to attend for free. Bonus: 24 CEUs/CMEs upon completion of the course.
