Training and Education

This section provides training resources such as manuals and tutorials to teach health care providers in various settings how to identify and document domestic violence, plan for safety of the patients, and make referrals to advocates. Because academic institutions still provide health professional students with little to no training related to domestic violence, this section also brings attention to this important curricular gap. Included are documents providing information on student-led organizing efforts, as well as recommendations for ensuring that all students receive solid education on domestic violence prevention, identification and responses.
