Recognizing and Providing Care for Survivors of Intimate Partner Violence, Second Edition

Victims of intimate partner violence (IPV) account for a significant number of patients—women and men—who use health care services, and the nature of IPV 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 guidance, updated this year, give a needed background on the issue and the role that physical therapists have in identifying, treating, and advocating for those who are abused by a current or former intimate partner.
