Developing an intervention to help in responding to child abuse

We are looking for GPs and primary care nurses to participate in a PhD project that aims to develop an intervention to support responding to child abuse in general practice.

Child abuse is a common issue and responding can be a real challenge in clinical practice. Involving the voices of GPs and primary care nurses in the development of an intervention is crucial to enabling the intervention to be targeted to their needs.

Participation involves attending a 1.5-hour focus group or 1-hour individual interview to explore what you want in an intervention to support you in responding to child abuse. Participation can be in-person, over the phone or via video call.

The focus groups and interviews will be running until June 2019. The focus group will be catered. Participants will receive free access to the ‘Identifying and Responding to Domestic and Family Violence’ learning module that contributes credit towards continuing education, developed by Professor Kelsey Hegarty and registered nurse Renee Fiolet.
