The Community Safety Network is proud to present a continuing education opportunity made possible by St. John’s Medical Center. Join Dr. Jenifer Markowitz as she discusses the impacts of sexual violence on health and well-being, and best practices for various disciplines to screen, support and refer patients.
The health impacts of intimate partner violence (IPV) are well documented in the scienti c 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 sexual violence; and provide resources and tools to assist clinicians with providing comprehensive and trauma-informed care to this patient population.
Medical practitioners from all disciplines are invited.
• Describe the research on the connection between IPV and other health issues
• Summarize the relationship between IPV and sexual violence
• Identify strategies to address the short- and long-term health consequences of IPV in the clinical setting
