Victims of domestic violence account for a significant number of women who use health care services, and the nature of domestic violence injuries will often necessitate physical therapy and rehabilitation. The rapport that a physical therapist or physical therapist assistant develops with a patient may facilitate the revelation of abuse by that patient—it could even save a life. APTA’s guidelines, updated this year, give you needed background on the issue and the role that physical therapists have in identifying, treating and advocating for women and any others who are abused by a current or former intimate partner. Plus, earn .2 CEU when you take and submit the related exam in the back of the booklet.
