For centuries, society has avoided addressing violence among family members. As medical caregivers, we must remember that the definition of violence includes not only actual injuries, but also the consequences of the threat of violence. Battery is the single most common cause of injuries to women. Annually in the U.S., between 2-4 million women experience severe assault. The actual incidence of battery is difficult to determine. Misconception is a huge barrier in recognizing domestic violence; some might believe that violence does not occur in relationships that appear normal, that battered women are responsible for their own abuse, or that domestic violence is a private matter. Domestic violence is a pattern of behavior, marked by many recurrences. Interventions are more effective when the violence is identified early. Many times, there is a long history of emotional and sexual abuse prior to the recognition of inflicted injuries. Although this presentation is from the medical perspective, the concepts are pertinent to all persons working with women and families. This online activity is approved by the Florida Board of Nursing for APRNs, for 1 hour on Domestic Violence (approved as of 2/11/20). This activity meets the criteria of the Florida Board of Medicine; approval is not required. CE Broker Provider #50-27480, Activity #20-688615

Public and even healthcare professionals commonly misunderstand Palliative Care as Hospice Care. Primary Care Providers (PCP) are the frontline professionals caring for the patients who are chronically ill with declining trajectory as their diseases become incurable and progressive. It is very important that PCPs recognize palliative care needs of these patients and their families as well as to address those “basic” needs such as pain and symptoms management, discussion of goals of care and advance care planning in timely and effectively at point of care. It is also important to identify those whom may benefit from expertise by palliative specialists and to make appropriate and timely referral. The talk focuses on basic knowledge of palliative care and skills such as management of common symptoms and communication skills essential in addressing those needs in primary care clinical settings. The talk also provides strategies to prioritize competing issues during rather short primary care encounters and to address these issues effectively. To highlight clinical problems, case discussion format is used, and relevant evidence-based references are included.
