Summary:

According to the CDC’s Injury Center Division of Violence Prevention, intimate partner violence is a major public health concern, with one woman in four and one man in seven age 18 and older in the U.S. having been victims of severe physical violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime. There needs to be a focus on recognizing abuse and prevention, as many cases go unrecognized even when victims seek out medical care, due to healthcare provider barriers to assessing for abuse. Lack of specific training in intimate partner violence is one of the leading barriers identified by nurses and physicians.

Objectives:

The Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) requires OnCourse Learning to verify the number of clock hours awarded through a pilot testing process. Please help us by completing the survey at the link on your certificate. The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Based on the results, the clock hours awarded may be amended for this course. Please call (800) 866-0919 with any questions. Thank you for your assistance.
 
The goal of this continuing education module is to provide healthcare professionals with information about the identification and management of victims of domestic violence or intimate partner violence (IPV) and to meet Florida state mandatory continuing education requirements in domestic violence.

  • Define the differences between emotional, physical or sexual abuse in adults, teens, children and the elderly

  • Describe at least two assessment observations that are integral when charting on injuries that may have been sustained through IPV
  • Identify the correct procedure for safely asking potential victims of IPV if they have been abused

The course is inconsistent as to its audience- It sometimes ask what a nurse or what a Social worker will do. The roles in healthcare of these two professions are very different and the stage or moment that a Social Worker or Nurse sees a patient vary. Finally a Social worker would not complete a physical examination.

Didn't find the test to be really measuring the overall knowledge that people should have about domestic violence. The teaching methodology not engaging.
