Pregnancy in the context of domestic and family violence presents complex situations in which health practitioners need to assess patient safety and care.
Whilst domestic and family violence are not new, challenges in clinical settings, emerging data related to coercion prior to and during pregnancy presents new evidence useful to primary health policy and practice.
This one day workshop provides practical steps to identifying, responding to and referring patients at risk of, experiencing and/or perpetrating reproductive coercion. Participants will explore evidence based strategies to work with patients who are at risk of or experiencing reproductive coercion. Participants will gain confidence in working with perpetrators as patients and/or intimate partners. Participants will leave the training with additional capacity in trauma informed approaches to maximise patient safety and enhance patient care. Participants will have access to pre-readings, a hard copy resource pack and will be invited to an online assessment process.
