Title: Improving Health Outcomes Through Violence Prevention: Model Partnerships Between Community Health Centers and Domestic and Sexual Violence Programs
Date Recorded: May 24, 2017
Domestic and sexual Violence is a public health crisis, with long term health implications. Fortunately, there are strategies to respond. Futures Without Violence is excited to share effective intervention strategies and a new online toolkit for establishing and expanding partnerships between community health centers and local domestic violence/sexual assault (DV/SA) agencies. This toolkit was developed in partnership with twenty programs that participated in the Improving Health Outcomes through Violence Prevention Project and federal partners at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The toolkit offers easily adaptable tools making it the go-to resource for community health centers and DV/SA agencies partnering to improve the health and safety of survivors of DV/SA. This webinar will provide guidance for using the toolkit, share an evidence-based clinical intervention for addressing and responding to DV/SA in healthcare settings, and highlight successful partnerships between health and DV/SA programs.
