From the site:

Description: With the screening and brief counseling coverage requirements in the Affordable Care Act and the screening recommendations in the US Preventive Service Task Force, many are looking for the best evidence-based screening tool for domestic violence to use in health settings. However, research suggests that disclosure-based responses to domestic violence are limiting because they constrain our opportunities for prevention and limits education to only those who are ready to disclose and who have been screened appropriately. Additionally, in the quest for the right screening question, the intervention is often overlooked. This webinar offers an approach that incorporates universal education and direct inquiry as well as patient-centered brief interventions that are evidence based and easy to implement.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss the limitations of incorporating evidence-based screening tools without a plan for those who aren’t ready for disclosure or a plan for brief interventions for those who do.
  2. Understand the role universal education can play in both prevention and intervention.
  3. Understand the evidence behind a patient-centered and brochure-based intervention.

Speaker: Dr. Elizabeth Miller, Chief of Adolescent Medicine, Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC
