Operation Safety Program
The Operation Safety Program educates professional and allied healthcare providers and students about the dynamics of domestic violence by offering specifically tailored presentations about intimate partner violence and related topics. These workshops provide the tools needed to effectively screen and identify patients who may be victims of domestic violence, and support victims who may need a safety plan or other resources.
Trainings offer a reasonable, workable model for provider involvement by discussing methods of assessing injuries, interviewing techniques, documentation, and responding to victims who may present concerns in the health care setting.
Participants learn how to respond to patients’ complaints of ambiguous symptoms, recurrent illness and unexplained somatic events, and how to appropriately intervene in a sensitive, non-judgmental manner to give patients the resources and information necessary for achieving safety.
