Training about sexual and domestic violence
Sexual and domestic violence are common, affecting many people that doctors meet as patients. Relevant competences are included in the 2012 Foundation Curriculum, to supplement those already covering safeguarding children and vulnerable adults.
A resource pack has been produced which provides trainers with the information and teaching materials for a one-hour interactive session for foundation doctors, and suggestions for optional further training sessions and self-directed learning.
The sexual and domestic violence resource pack is now available.
