Evidence-Based and Promising Interventions to Address the Intersections of IPV and Maternal Health

Event Date
Monday, January 23, 2023, 01:00PM

The intersection of intimate partner violence (IPV), racism and maternal mortality among birthing people remains one of the least explored and under-resourced topics, yet is central to ensuring expectant and parenting people do not continue to die from preventable causes. This webinar will feature individual and organizational level strategies that health centers can implement to advance health equity and increase positive health outcomes for birthing people who have experienced IPV. Participants will hear from an OB/GYN working to improve the clinical response to IPV, as well as from a survivor about their experience with the healthcare system during pregnancy and birth. The evidence-based CUES intervention, an adaptable health center protocol, and tools for building partnerships and strengthening connections between health centers and domestic violence advocates and other community-based programs will be shared.  It is crucial that we learn about innovative clinical practices, birth worker activism, consumer and survivor experiences, and health models that show promise in promoting health and justice for birthing people.

Intervenciones prometedoras y basadas en la evidencia para abordar las intersecciones de la VPI y la salud materna

La intersección de la violencia de pareja íntima (VPI), el racismo y la mortalidad materna entre las personas que dan a luz sigue siendo uno de los temas menos explorados y con menos recursos, pero es fundamental para garantizar que las mujeres y personas embarazadas y las madres no sigan muriendo por causas prevenibles.

Este seminario web presentará estrategias a nivel individual y organizacional que los centros de salud pueden implementar para promover la equidad en la salud y aumentar los resultados de salud positivos para las personas que dan a luz que han experimentado VPI. Escucharemos a un obstetra/ginecólogo que trabaja para mejorar la respuesta clínica a la VPI, así como a una sobreviviente sobre su experiencia con el sistema.
