About the Course

Domestic violence is perpetrated by someone who is or was involved in an intimate relationship with the victim. It may include repeated battering and injury, psychological abuse, sexual assault, progressive social isolation, or deprivation and intimidation. In 2013, the United States first developed a national protocol to identify this type of violence as well as identification, treatment, and prevention methods. Today, that protocol has matured into best practices and standardization for IPV care throughout the U.S. It is currently estimated that 1 in 4 women and 1 in 10 men have experienced some type of intimate partner violence. This in-depth video course explores the epidemiology, incidence and prevalence of IPV as well as best practice standards and state mandatory reporting requirements. 

Learning Outcomes
Upon the completion of this course, the learner should be able to:
  • Identify populations at risk for intimate partner violence (IPV). 
  • Discuss varying state reporting mandates in cases of IPV. 
  • Explain the various screening assessments and tools used in working with a survivor of IPV. 
  • Explain the effects of the injuries sustained by a survivor of IPV.
  • Discuss nursing approaches, assessment, and care for the patient who has been affected by IPV.
