'Good Morning, Children's Mercy!'
Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) can have long-term negative effects on the physical and mental health of children. This week Jason talks with Kim Randell, MD, Pediatric Emergency Medicine Physician, and KaMille Washington, Bridge Advocate in the hospital’s Advocacy Program, about the importance of universal screening for IPV. The signs of IPV are not always obvious and the problem crosses all socio-economic classes. The IPV work group, part of the hospital’s Council on Violence Prevention, can help patient care areas that aren’t already conducting universal screening set up a program and help link children and families to counseling, shelter, legal and other community services. Listen to find out more about our hospital’s efforts to address IPV. (Time: 11:54)
