Description: The National Health Network on Intimate Partner Violence and Human Trafficking, funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Bureau of Primary Health Care, works with health centers and systems to support those at risk of experiencing or surviving intimate partner violence (IPV) or human trafficking (HT) and to bolster prevention efforts. The National Health Network on IPV and HT will be holding a Learning Collaborative on “Healing Centered Engagement for Patients Experiencing Intimate Partner Violence.”
Through four online sessions, this learning collaborative will bolster community health center (CHC) staff capacity so they can best support their patients on IPV and HT, including offering universal education, empowerment and support (the CUES approach) and offering warm referrals to community-based domestic violence programs (DVPs) for safety planning and other well-being support in the time of COVID-19. The learning collaborative will offer guidance on a range of topics including how to establish partnerships between CHCs/DVPs and establish memoranda of understanding (MOUs); staff self-care and organizational practices to help prevent provider burn out and bolster staff capacity; adapting the CUES approach for telehealth; an introduction to other tools and approaches featured on www.IPVHealthPartners.org, and an opportunity for peer exchanges among participating CHCs and DVPs.
