Online Seminar “Healthcare Responses to Domestic Violence: End of the Beginning?”

Parveen Ali, Lecturer in the School of Nursing and Midwifery and a member of Sheffield University Interpersonal Violence Research Group, is pleased to invite you to an online seminar being held on Thursday 17th March 2016 from 11:00 to 12:00.

The seminar is titled “Health Care responses to Domestic Violence: End of the beginning?” and is being led by Gene Feder, professor of primary health care at the 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. The seminar will conclude with unanswered questions about the effectiveness of interventions for survivors and perpetrators of DVA.

The event is free and open to anyone, you just need to register online to attend.
