As primary care providers, we are charged with ensuring our patients are healthy. According to the World Health Organization, “health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” However, sometimes our patients will not inform us of what problems or difficulties that they may be facing in their lives, which makes it difficult to help in these situations.
As result, we must screen or ask patients specific questions in attempts to make sure they are okay. One such example that we may screen for in these instances is intimate partner violence.
This condition has many presentations and can affect anyone. Intimate partner violence or domestic violence is reported to be a serious, preventable, public health concern as it affects more than 32 million Americans.
Tune in to this episode to learn more about what intimate partner violence looks like, the psychology behind intimate partner violence perpetrators, how we should be screening for this, and what we can do to help our patients in these situations.
This course is intended for primary care providers: physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants
