The Coalition’s Steering Committee is a dedicated team of professionals from across the state that is committed to ensuring that those who experience intimate partner violence can find proactive, effective and life-saving responses from the health care community.
The Coalition collaborates with other health care, domestic violence and sexual assault professionals, including the state’s hospital-based domestic violence victim advocacy programs, the Center for a Healthy Maryland, MedChi and the Maryland Network Against Domestic Violence to educate professionals in meeting the clinical challenges of intimate partner violence.
The Coalition offers presentations, seminars and conferences to educate Maryland health care providers and allied professionals about intimate partner violence-related issues. The Coalition also can provide expert consultation and technical assistance. We make available all of our educational materials for professionals, as well as outreach materials designed to inform patients about the health-related consequences of IPV.
