The Breaking the Barriers- Engaging and responding to patients who use domestic and family violence advanced workshop is 90 minute interactive training session facilitated by Safer Families Centre, University of Melbourne to support general practitioners and clinical primary care provider staff.
This workshop is designed for GPs and primary care providers who already have a base knowledge of how to identify when violence is occurring and safely engage with people who use violence.
The Advanced workshop is for clinical staff only and offer a deeper focus on enhancing confidence to respond safely and sensitively to disclosures of using domestic violence and how to access appropriate referral pathways. It will also cover how to consider the whole family when working with people who use violence.
