Parveen Ali, Lecturer in the School of Nursing and Midwifery is a  member of Sheffield University Interpersonal Violence Research Group, and is  pleased to invite you to our first on line seminar on 19 January 2016 (1330-1430 hrs). The seminar titled  Health Care responses to Domestic Violence: End of the beginning?” will be led by Gene Feder, professor of primary health care, University of Bristol. Gene’s research group carried out the first European epidemiological study of domestic violence and abuse (DVA), landmark systematic reviews on DVA screening and on survivors’ expectations of clinicians, and randomized controlled trials of DVA interventions. Gene led the NIHR-funded PROVIDE programme and has chaired the 2013 WHO intimate partner violence guideline development group and the 2014 NICE domestic violence programme development group.

In this seminar Gene will discuss the evidence for a robust health care response to Domestic violence and abuse (DVA), highlighting studies from his research group that have contributed to guidance and policy for health services nationally and internationally. He will conclude with unanswered questions about the effectiveness of interventions for survivors and perpetrators of DVA.
