16. Free and Low-Cost IPV Education and Awareness Materials

To promote IPV awareness with patients, CCDPH recommends SCC hospitals display IPV brochures, posters and safety/shoe cards in restrooms, waiting rooms and examination rooms. Posting a variety of information about IPV makes a statement that hospital personnel are approachable and prepared to discuss IPV with patients and that IPV is considered a health issue.
