Three or more GPs with a passion for addressing family violence are needed to lead local training for other GPs.

In Australia, around one in six women experiences family violence over her lifetime. Often the abused woman’s first professional contact is her GP, offering a unique opportunity for support.

This project seeks to provide a culturally appropriate response for South Asian and other immigrant women.

You will participate in the Harmony randomised controlled trial by delivering training to fellow GPs in the identification, frontline support, safety planning and referral of women experiencing family violence. You will be trained by experts in the field and will co-train with a caseworker from inTouch Multicultural Centre Against Family Violence.

When you deliver Harmony training to other GPs you will playing an important role in supporting women who experience family violence, and enhancing their safety.
