Resource Summary: This webinar will feature the critical role of domestic violence advocacy programs in supporting patients on intimate partner violence/human trafficking (IPV/HT) and how to build meaningful collaborations including initiating Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) and bidirectional warm referrals.
Resource Details: FUTURES will help community health centers (CHCs) establish this partnership by detailing mutual partnership benefits; sharing an MOU template; and offering other tools featured on www.ipvhealthpartners.org, including guidance and agenda topics for their first meeting. Additionally, the MOU template (tool) and guidance will reflect procedural changes related to COVID-19. For example, rather than meeting in person at the start of the partnership, virtual engagement will also be suggested, as well as expanding on other collaborative strategies given social distancing.
