Sexual Health Quarters developed a screening tool in 2018 to assist clinicians in identify clients who may be experiencing intimate partner violence and/or reproductive coercion and abuse. The implementation of the screening tool at our Northbridge clinic highlighted the prevalence of intimate partner violence and reproductive coercion and abuse experienced by Australian women. We went on to develop the Safe to Tell Project to support healthcare providers to recognise, respond and refer their patients experiencing intimate partner and/or reproductive coercion and abuse.
Over the past year the Safe to Tell Project has created an education and training course for healthcare providers. This course aims to increase knowledge of intimate partner violence and reproductive coercion and abuse and improve capacity to support patients with these lived experiences. This course includes an RACGP accredited eLearning course and ongoing access to all resources developed by the Safe to Tell team.
Our online training course consists of six self-paced modules, each taking approximately 60 minutes to complete. Those based in Perth will also be provided with an opportunity to attend optional face–to–face training upon completion of the eLearning component
Completing the training will provide you with RACGP/ACRRM CPD points. To read more about the training course and to enrol click here.
