Monash University’s Department of Forensic Medicine and consortia partner, the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine (VIFM), have developed a three-unit Course for health practitioners in Recognising and Responding to Sexual Violence. The training will equip healthcare professionals to recognise and respond appropriately to adult disclosures of sexual violence. Consideration is given to rural and remote practitioners and those whose practice catchment includes patients at higher risk of experiencing sexual violence. Each unit is delivered online over a six-week period and includes live sessions with clinicians with expertise in responding to sexual violence. Units include: 1) Sexual Violence: Drivers and Impacts; 2) Responding to Sexual Violence in Adults, and 3) Responding to Sexual Violence in At-Risk Patients.
