Providing Health Services in Domestic Violence Programs

Another good webinar in the FVPF‘s healthcare series: Providing Health Services to Survivors in Domestic Violence Programs. The session will be held October 6th from 11-12:30 PT. This series is free, but preregistration is required. The speakers have not yet been announced at this time.

From the site:

“This webinar will examine innovative and emerging models of clinical service provision that reach survivors of abuse directly in domestic violence (DV) community-based programs.  Such model programs will be reviewed including how to partner with medical residency and nursing programs as well as public health programs to offer basic health services to clients.  This work aims to reach both women and children already utilizing DV community services, as a cost effective, creative solution to address and improve the health needs of DV survivors. The webinar will also address the need for, and opportunity to assess for sexual assault, reproductive coercion and birth control interference at the time of DV program intake.  Assessing for these reproductive health issues has the potential to reduce unintended pregnancy and address the issues of power and control faced by women entering shelter.”
