The project includes training bilingual South Asian general practitioners and their clinical colleagues to safely and confidentially identify culturally diverse, including South Asian backgrounds, women attending their practices who are experiencing family violence, and to provide them with support and confidential referral to a family violence project worker at inTouch and other appropriate services.
The role of the family violence project worker will be to assist in the training of GPs and other clinical staff in a number of practices, to support women referred from the GP practices including outreach support, to provide ad-hoc consultation with clinicians, and to collect, record and analyse referral data. This position will work collaboratively with other programs and also provide support to other inTouch projects and initiatives as and when required.
