Health Professionals Urged to Attend Domestic Violence Conference

Women's Aid is urging professionals from across the NHS and private healthcare sectors to attend its prestigious National Conference in July. The conference is a prime opportunity for Nurses, GPs, A&E staff, Paramedics, and others to brush up on best practice in dealing with patients affected by domestic and sexual violence. The Conference, on 11 July at Warwick University, will also be helpful to healthcare managers looking to ensure their services provide the best possible response to women and children at risk of domestic violence.


The charity is highlighting that with renewed attention on the role of police and other services to protect women and children experiencing domestic violence, no frontline NHS service can afford to neglect training in this key area. Specialist talks on Female Genital Mutilation and workshops on Family Intervention Projects will be of particular value to professionals in the field.

To attend the conference, find out more on our website or contact Katie Ross on 01179 837121 or k.ross@womensaid.org.uk. For media enquiries please contact Franki Hackett on 0207 566 2511 or f.hackett@womensaid.org.uk.

Polly Neate, Chief Executive at Women's Aid said: "Frontline health workers and their managers have a key role to play in protecting women and children from domestic abuse. The Women's Aid National Conference provides a key opportunity to develop links with other organisations in the sector and learn the best ways to safeguard patients at-risk of abuse. I highly recommend buying tickets soon, before they run out."
