Description

The Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) Educational Guidelines identify didactic content and supplemental clinical experiences that will prepare nurses to respond effectively to patients who are affected by IPV. The objectives are to assist the practitioner in meeting the needs of patients, families, communities, and systems and to ensure that all patients who experience IPV receive competent nursing care with regard to culture, age, sexuality, spirituality, socioeconomic status, and geography.

Based on a standardized body of scientific knowledge, these guidelines outline the process for medically and forensically evaluating a patient who is experiencing IPV, and specify the minimum level of instruction required. The 19-page publication includes a detailed roadmap for conducting didactic and clinical instruction, plus references and links to online resources from around the world.
All nurses, regardless of specialty or geographic location, encounter patients who are affected by Intimate Partner Violence (IPV). These educational guidelines identify didactic content and supplemental clinical experiences that will prepare nurses to respond effectively to patients who experience IPV. The objective is to assist the practitioner in meeting the needs of patients, families, communities, and systems, while ensuring that all patients who experience IPV receive competent nursing care with regard to culture, age, sexuality, spirituality, socioeconomic status, and geography.
As used in this document, IPV encompasses a continuum of violent and abusive experiences in which variations of harm, neglect, abuse, and violence occur between people in intimate relationships. Such relationships are not limited to one age group, but instead, span from teen dating violence to abuse by intimate partners in later life. The patient who experiences IPV, regardless of where she or he enters the health care system, is the focus.
Based on a standardized body of scientific knowledge, these guidelines outline the process for medically and forensically evaluating a patient who is experiencing IPV, and specifies the minimum level of instruction required.
The competencies are grounded in the nursing process, ensuring that nurses from varied backgrounds will be equipped to provide holistic and comprehensive care for this special patient population.
The 19-page publication includes a detailed roadmap for conducting didactic and clinical instruction, plus references and links to online resources from around the world.
