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.
