Abstract: Intimate partner violence (IPV) in later life is often undetected by healthcare providers, in part due to misconceptions and the complexity of elder mistreatment. This learning collaborative will review the various forms of abuse and discuss approaches for successful prevention and interventions that focus on safety and wellness for older adult patients.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand how IPV assessment and response fits into screening initiatives for the social determinants of health
  • Develop patient-centered counseling approaches tailored for older adults in harmful or unsafe relationships
  • Identify strategies for building sustainable partnerships between health centers and community-based domestic violence programs and other service providers

Intended Audience: Health center providers and staff who care for older adults; domestic violence program staff
