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.
