Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) is a prevalent issue with women being at the highest risk for victimization. Healthcare providers are in a position to identify and treat the victims of IPV. A systematic review of the literature was conducted with the purpose of identifying effective ways to provide care to victims of IPV. The research question guiding this project is: Can patients experiencing IPV benefit from interventions that address IPV in a primary care setting? A total of fourteen studies were identified that met the inclusion criteria. An examination of the literature revealed several themes for effective interventions including; the importance of universal screening, the use of mindfulness-based therapies, implementing educational programs, and the importance of providing trauma-informed care. There is a limited amount of quality research surrounding this topic, however, the literature suggests that interventions are underutilized in healthcare settings. This study is important for increasing provider awareness of the effective interventions for the treatment of IPV victims.
