21st INRC [Research Presentation] Purpose: The purpose of this research is to explore Haitian women's perceptions of intimate partner violence (IPV).  1. What are women's perceptions and definitions of IPV? 2. Is there a difference of perceptions and definitions between abused women and non-abused women? and 3. Are there differences in perceptions and definitions of IPV by race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, education, and religion? Methods: This research will use a mixed-method design. An open-ended interview guide will be used to explore abused and non-abused Haitian women's definitions and perceptions of intimate partner violence (IPV). Major variables will also include SES, education, race, ethnicity, and religion. Constructs to be empirically explored are physical abuse, psychological and emotional abuse, and economic abuse.  Results: This research will use a mixed-method design. An open-ended interview guide will be used to explore abused and non-abused Haitian women's definitions and perceptions of intimate partner violence (IPV). Conclusion: Findings from this study will help reduce and eliminate health disparities among ethnic minority populations through accumulation of insights, knowledge, and learned skills related to the prevention of IPV across the lifespan. There is a need for the development of Evidence-Based tools, evaluation, and research outcomes sensitive to specific cultural groups as well as the design of community strategies and policies to decrease bias and stereotyping among populations, enhance communication skills, and deliver health teaching through interpreters and other modalities.
