Series teaches how to recognize abuse

Posted: Sunday, February 13, 2000

It's not just a black eye or a bruised chin.

Domestic violence can show itself in a nagging cough, chronic stomach aches that don't respond to treatment and other seemingly innocuous ways.

The education department of Bartlett Regional Hospital is sponsoring a series of classes to help medical professionals recognize the signs of domestic violence.

The series will be presented by the staff of AWARE.

``This series is more directed for medical personnel,'' said registered nurse Laura Stats, who works in the emergency room at Bartlett.

``People outside the medical profession can get similar classes at AWARE,'' Stats said. For the schedule, call AWARE at 586-6623.

For medical professionals such as physicians and nurse practitioners, a single, four-hour session will provide information about recognition of victims of domestic violence, referral, reporting and follow-up. Four sessions were given in January.

The session meets next Feb. 22 from 7 to 11 a.m.; then repeats Feb. 28 from 1 to 5 p.m.; March 6, 1 to 4 p.m.; March 13, 7 to 11 a.m.; March 20 from 1 to 4 p.m.; and March 27 from 6 to 10 p.m.

All sessions will be held in Room 203-B of Bartlett's administration building. Credit of four nursing contact hours is available for nurses who take one of the sessions.

To register, call the education department at 586-8422 or e-mail dbigge@hisea.org.
