Register for Webinar: Intimate Partner Violence in the Pediatric Healthcare Setting

April 19, 2017

CHOP’s Violence Prevention Initiative (VPI) and Lutheran Settlement House will be presenting a free webinar for physicians, nurses, social workers and other healthcare professionals: “Intimate Partner Violence and Pediatrics.” Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a critical issue in pediatric healthcare. Each year in the US, 15.5 million children are exposed to adult IPV, leaving them vulnerable to poor health, substance abuse, anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress symptoms. Participants will learn how to:

  • Define IPV
  • Identify the effects of IPV on victims and their children
  • Provide safe techniques for screening and documentation
  • Provide strategies to overcome barriers to screening and challenges of addressing IPV in the pediatric setting
  • Provide recommendations to establish referral and collaborative partnerships with IPV resources/providers in the community.
