Course Summary

Interpersonal violence involves violence between intimate partners and against vulnerable members of society, such as children and the elderly. Members of the interdisciplinary health team often encounter victims of interpersonal violence. Within the scope of their practice, health clinicians should be prepared to identify these victims and know how to help them. It is important to choose an effective screening tool for a patient's particular circumstance. Following the screening process, a clinician may be required to report the abuse.
