New toolkit to help GPs support victims of domestic violence
One in four women have experienced physical or sexual violence by a partner, boyfriend or date. GPs are in a unique position to help women affected by sexual assault and domestic and family violence, which is why it’s important that they have the appropriate tools, information and guidance to know how to respond. Whether it’s noticing the signs and knowing how to start difficult conversations, or dealing with disclosure, how GPs respond can have a huge impact.
1800RESPECT has launched an online toolkit for GPs and other frontline workers to help them better recognise the signs of sexual assault, domestic and family violence and empower them to respond well.
