Position Statement & Best Practice Recommendations

The Canadian Orthopaedic Association (COA) recognizes that intimate partner violence (IPV) is a significant social determinant of morbidity and mortality, and that orthopaedic surgeons are well positioned to identify patients living with IPV and provide assistance. Therefore, the COA encourages its members to educate themselves further about IPV and considers it good medical practice to take steps to identify and offer assistance to its victims.
