Addressing IPV and Exploitation in Health Centers

Health centers are key to violence prevention, and Health Partners works to build their capacity through learning collaboratives, national webinars, and training materials to implement our evidence-based “CUES” intervention, support systems change, increase staff capacity, and build partnerships with domestic violence and sexual assault (DV/SA) programs. Health centers and DV/SA advocacy programs are natural partners given their shared mission to improve the health, wellness, and safety of their clients.

Learn more about our evidence-based “CUES” intervention, which is a universal education approach to addressing IPV, HT, and exploitation with all adult female-identifying and LGBTQ patients, and adolescent patients about the health consequences of IPV and HT. The “CUES” intervention features a small safety card for patients to take home with them and share with a friend or family member.
Visit our online toolkit, www.IPVHealthPartners.org, for more information on supporting health centers to address and prevent IPV, HT, and exploitation, and to build partnerships with DV/SA programs.
