The health impacts of intimate partner violence (IPV) are well documented in the scientific literature. There are a wide variety of comorbid health complaints described, ranging from chronic pain complaints to gynecological disorders to cardiac disease. Because of this, clinicians must approach the care of IPV patients as more than just the documentation of an acute episode of violence. All healthcare providers, regardless of specialty, need to understand how experiencing violence, including IPV, impact both the short- and long-term health of patients.
