This curriculum focuses on the crucial role of the health care provider in identifying and addressing IPV, reproductive coercion (RC), and sexual coercion (SC). The curriculum provides training, tools, and resources to help health care providers address these complex and sometimes uncomfortable issues. It highlights research that demonstrates how a brief intervention using a safety card to educate female patients about RC and SC during primary care and reproductive health visits can improve reproductive health outcomes and promote safe and health relationships. Safety cards and other resources for integrating and sustaining a trauma-informed coordinated response to IPV, RC, and SC are included in this curriculum.
