Intimate Partner Violence is a type of Domestic Violence (DV), referring to physical, verbal, emotional, or sexual violence, or stalking between current or former intimate partners. Veterans may be at higher risk than those identified in the civilian population. The rate of IPV across military populations ranges from 13.5% to 58% with rates among female Veterans ranging from 29% to 74% (Veterans Affairs, 2023). This project's purpose was to evaluate the effectiveness of an awareness campaign on IPV screening and referral rates in a federal healthcare facility. Results from this DNP project indicate that ongoing training and education are vital in improving intimate partner violence (IPV) screening outcomes.

Keywords: Intimate Partner Violence training, Interventions, Screenings, Veterans affected by IPV, healthcare providers, Relationship Health and Safety Screening, universal education, and awareness.
