Adapting a Successful Medical School Elective on Domestic Violence into a Service Learning Model for Nurses
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International

Title:Training and Education Director
[Research Presentation] According to the 2004 World Health Organization report, intimate partner violence is a major contributor to negative health outcomes with multicultural and multidimensional implications. Intimate partner violence is a term used interchangeably with domestic violence and spousal abuse globally. Healthcare providers are instrumental in reducing the related adverse health affects and improve the medical response of those victimized. Since 2003, the Domestic Violence Coordinating Council Training and Education Program in Omaha Nebraska offers a bio-psychosocial elective on intimate partner violence for the fourth year medical student. This nationally recognized model includes a comprehensive learning experience involving numerous community agencies and disciplines. Didactic training and skill application are critical elements. At the completion of the course, students understand the need for interlinking support services when treating victims. Curricular activities include a police ride-along, participation in a teaching nonviolence program and attend a prison inmate educational group. Students shadow a domestic violence advocate within the criminal justice and medical systems. They tour a military facility with orientation to the family advocacy program and participate in various shelter experiences.á Students receive a medico-legal case study with a strangulation scenario. The student performs a medical evaluation on a standardized patient who presents with intentional injury patterns in an emergency room setting. Utilizing documented findings, the student testifies as a medical expert in an actual courtroom with a district judge presiding over a mock strangulation trial. The success of this program supports the benefit of its implementation as a nursing educational model. The course provides a flexible schedule and outline to accommodate the service learning experience. This presentation will illustrate program development and implementation.á Through utilization of adult learning concepts including various evaluation tools, this comprehensive experience can be successfully replicated.
