Description: Join the National Center for Farmworker Health and Health Partners on IPV + Exploitation on this webinar where presenters will define and explore the intersection of intimate partner violence (IPV), and human trafficking (HT) and exploitation, and how these factors impact patient health. Presenters will also describe the “CUES” (Confidentiality, Universal Education, Empowerment, and Support), an evidence-based intervention and how it can be implemented at a health center along with strategies for partnering with domestic violence and sexual assault (DV/SA) advocacy programs that can be helpful in responding to IPV and HT amongst patient populations, including agricultural workers.
Participants will be able to:
Define and explore the intersection of intimate partner violence and human trafficking and exploitation, and how these factors impact patient health.
Learn about the “CUES” evidence-based intervention and gather strategies to improve how a health center identifies and responds to IPV and HT, to support patient safety and improve health outcomes.
Identify DV/SA advocacy programs to address patient needs and increase violence prevention efforts, and access patient safety resources including the Farmworker Safety Card and Toolkit for Building Health Center and Domestic Violence Program Partnerships.
