Release Date: 05/06/2022
Expiration Date: 05/06/2023
Format: Enduring Online Material

Target Audience

This activity is intended for healthcare providers practicing in the ambulatory clinic setting. The following professions are the focal audience: physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, licensed practical counselors, marriage and family therapists, and social workers.

Statement of Need

The intersections between HIV and IPV are critical to address when trying to enhance both violence and HIV prevention efforts and improve health outcomes for survivors. Based on findings from the Technology Enhanced Screening and Supportive Assistance(TESSA) training evaluations, there is low knowledge and awareness of the intersection of IPV and HIV among health care professionals and IPV service providers. Additionally, healthcare providers in primary care settings have limited capacity in using motivational interviewing and dialogue skills to engage patients to discuss sexual health negotiations within the context of an abusive relationship.

Educational Objectives

Upon completion of this activity learners should be able to:

  1. Describe the incidence of intimate partner violence (IPV) and HIV in Tarrant County and North Texas.
  2. Explain the intersection of IPV and the risk of acquiring HIV. 
  3. Identify healthcare professionals' role in recognizing an individual's need for IPV and HIV support services.
