Finding Our Voices: Intimate Partner Violence, the #MeToo Movement, and Our Role as Providers (Recorded at Pri-Med Midwest)

This talk will focus on the central importance of power differentials in relationships and the role of power and control in intimate partner violence (IPV).  The speaker will outline the identifying signs and symptoms of abuse and discuss techniques for screening for IPV during office visits. Participants will review opportunities and methods for developing safety plans and providing emotional, legal, and medical support to patients when IPV has been identified. The #MeToo movement is an empowering catalyst for victims to speak out about abuse; we as providers are in a unique and privileged position to support and advocate for these deserving patients.
