I have had the pleasure of practicing as a nurse for the last twenty years. Areas of practice include cardiology, emergency nursing, forensics, and hospice as a registered nurse. I graduated from Western Governors University with a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing in 2012. In 2015, I graduated from Chamberlain University’s master’s degree program as a Family Nurse Practitioner. In 2019, I graduated as a Doctor of Nursing Practice at Chamberlain University focusing on Healthcare Systems Leadership. I have practiced as a nurse practitioner in primary care for the last four years.
The purpose of this poster presentation is to implement domestic violence screening in the primary care setting by improving self-efficacy among the clinical staff. Domestic violence affects primary care worse than chronic diseases such as hypertension, obesity, and hyperlipidemia (Sohal et al., 2018). It can lead to mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD (Sohal et al., 2018). Studies show these patients use healthcare more than the average person and clinical staff in the primary care setting are less prepared then emergency and gynecological clinical staff in screening for DV (Sundborg, Saleh-Stattin, Wandell, & Tornkvist, 2012).
This course reflects the sum total of the presentations at the 14th National Doctors of Nursing Practice Conference.
