Domestic violence is a health care problem of epidemic proportions. Oral health providers are in a pivotal position for identifying head, face, and neck injuries typical of domestic violence or child abuse. To raise awareness about this public health issue, the IHS Division of Oral Health worked with Barbara Gabbert, PhD at the University of California San Francisco's Dental School. Dr. Gabbert developed the AVDR [Ask, Validate, Document, and Refer] program, and IHS Division of Oral Health incorporated the AVDR DVD into this course.
This course is delivered online and includes interactive activities, lecture, and video demonstrations.
Course developed January 2007. Course reviewed December 2010. Course updated February 2014.
