About the Course:
Intimate partner violence (IPV) refers to physical violence, sexual violence, psychological aggression (including coercive tactics, such as limiting access to money), or stalking by a person with whom one has a close personal relationship (e.g., former romantic relationship, spouse. While estimates of IPV prevalence varies for a variety of reasons, it’s been estimated that the lifetime prevalence (based on data from 2015) among women is 36.4% and 33.4% among men. Understandably, much has been done to help prevent and treat IPV. This study provides meta-analysis of 30 studies examining the screening and/or treatment of adult abuse victimization, and is based on research conducted by the RTI International–University of North Carolina Evidence-based Practice Center (EPC) under contract to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).
