Domestic violence occurs in relationships among family members, partners, and people who share the same household or are dating; it includes child and elder abuse. Over the past 25 years, progress has been made in reducing domestic violence. However, domestic violence remains a serious problem in the U.S. The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence reports that 10 million people are physically abused by an intimate partner every year and that more than 20,000 calls are placed each day to domestic violence hotlines. The National Children’s Alliance estimates that nearly 700,000 children are abused annually, while the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests hundreds of thousands of adults over age 60 are abused, neglected, or financially exploited.
Goal and Learning Outcomes:
The goal of this continuing education program is to enhance healthcare professionals’ ability to identify and treat children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly who are victims of domestic violence and abuse. The completion of this module is intended to satisfy a three-hour continuing education requirement for healthcare professionals about domestic violence and abuse across patients’ life span. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
• Identify the role intimate partner advocacy plays in helping victims/survivors to understand that physical, sexual, or emotional abuse is not their fault but an issue of power and control
• Relate direct and indirect questions that broach the subject of violence and abuse with patients, partners and family members, and screen for abuse
• Identify risk factors and signs and symptoms associated with adolescent dating violence
• List steps ensuring the safety of abused women who decide to leave an abusive environment
