May 25, 2017- Patient-Centered Approach to DV in Health Settings

With the screening and brief counseling 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. Learn a brief, evidence based intervention that supports survivors and promotes healthy relationships. This webinar will feature a new online tool for health providers and advocates.
