  • How to respond to disclosures of sexual violence (acute, recent and historical sexual violence)
  • Medical, legal and reporting information

Guest Presenter: Fiona Richardson-Clark, Advanced Clinician, Social Worker, Sexual Assault, Domestic & Family Violence, West Moreton Hospital and Health Service 

The purpose of the DVAC Practice Forums is to develop relationships between staff in organisations and departments working with families experiencing Domestic & Family Violence; to streamline and improve services across the group and provide excellent professional development opportunities for everyone involved.
