Intimate Partner Violence and Reproductive Coercion and Abuse Education

Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) and Reproductive Coercion and Abuse (RCA) are very common in Australia, with one study finding rates of 37% amongst general practice patients. The health impacts of this abuse are many, but can be reduced by effective primary care. There are a number of barriers to the identification and care of patients experiencing abuse, but training can increase GP confidence and skills in identifying and caring for these patients.

 

Learning Outcomes 

  1. Discuss the prevalence of IPV and RCA
  2. Discuss the health impacts of IPV and RCA 
  3. Discuss barriers to identifying people experiencing IPV and RCA 
  4. Appropriately respond to a disclosure of IPV and RCA 
  5. Discuss possible referral options for a patient experiencing IPV and RCA 
  6. Understand the importance of self-care for clinicians

Thank you so much for your prompt assistance! Indeed the course has been useful. I was able to delve deeper into a consultation regarding an unplanned pregnancy and discovered issues with the patient’s marriage, which may not have been revealed otherwise. I am very pleased i got the opportunity to participate in the course.” – Doctor
