DV/IPV Sexual Assault

Campus Sexual and Dating Violence: The Role of Campus Health Centers

Futures Without Violence has an upcoming webinar, Campus Sexual and Dating Violence: The Role of Campus Health Centers. The session will be held August 8th at 1:30pm ET. CMEs are available for physicians, but sadly, it doesn’t look like nursing CEUs are available for this one. From the announcement:

Intimate partner and sexual violence (IPV/SV) is highly prevalent on college campuses, impacting student health and educational attainment.  Campus health centers are a vital component of campus-wide efforts to prevent and respond to IPV/SV.  Though survivors are often discouraged from reporting or discussing their experiences through traditional pathways, health care providers on campuses are in a unique position to be able to offer support, as well as to provide universal education to all patients about healthy relationships and how violence can affect health and academic performance. This session will provide tools and resources for campus health center staff to address (IPV/SV) in their clinical practice, as well as engage in a range of campus-wide efforts. Presenters will outline best practices for implementing a comprehensive IPV/SV protocol that includes staff training, routine assessment in clinical encounters, student outreach, and partnership with other campus departments and community-based victim services providers.

This webinar is co-hosted by Futures Without Violence Health Resource Center and the American College Health Association.

As a result of attending this webinar, participants will be better able to:

  • Discuss the impact of IPV/SV on health and educational attainment
  • Implement a universal safety card-based intervention to prevent and respond to IPV/SV within their campus health center
  • Utilize the ACHA Addressing Sexual and Relationship Violence: A Trauma-Informed Approach toolkit
  • Identify next steps in preparing their campus health center to address IPV/SV
