Recognizing the health impacts of domestic and sexual violence, FUTURES works across sectors to advance quality health care for patients everywhere. We pioneer best practices and policies to address the unique health needs of survivors of violence and promote prevention. From training and technical assistance to improve health care providers’ response to domestic violence, to innovative partnerships that make health care more accessible to survivors when they need it most.
We provide access to the latest research, training, and resources to improve the health care response to domestic violence. For nearly 20 years, FUTURES has been the federally-designated National Health Resource Center on Domestic Violence. Bridging the gaps between domestic and sexual violence advocates, health care professionals, and social workers, our programs support innovative partnerships that promote a more holistic approach to health care for survivors of violence.
The Conference highlights the latest research and promising practices to advance the health care system’s response to domestic and sexual violence, bringing together the field’s leading medical, public health, and domestic violence experts from across the United States and the world.
