Screening for Intimate Partner Violence

OB and Family Medicine Resident Education Regarding Intimate Partner Violence (IPV)

Principal Investigator: Dr. Suneet Chauhan, MD

Organization: Aurora Sinai Medical Center

Summary of the Project: Resident education on IPV was achieved through two Brown Bag Lunch Discussions and with the use of Objective Structured Clinical Exercises (OSCE). Residents were able to practice the techniques and strategies taught through video-taped standardized patient encounters. This was followed by a group review of all video sessions emphasizing effective techniques while discouraging ineffective techniques. The Health Care Provider Survey On Intimate Partner Violence was administered to the Residents before and after the Resident Education and was scored using the scoring key.  IPV training did demonstrate increased resident knowledge, attitude and behavior regarding patient experiences of IPV.
