Domestic Violence and Abuse e-learning - New sessions available

Domestic Violence and Abuse

Dear colleagues

Please find below details about new sessions available on the Domestic Violence and Abuse elearning programme to support health visitors and nurses working with those affected by domestic violence and abuse.

I would be grateful if you would share it among your networks to advise that it is now available via Health Education England elearning for healthcare.

New content added to the Domestic Violence and Abuse elearning programme

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has been working with the Institute of Health Visiting to add new content to the Domestic Violence and Abuse elearning programme.

The planned updates to the existing elearning programme are particularly timely due to the expected rise in domestic violence and abuse cases as a result of the considerable social and economic challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A leading domestic abuse charity in the UK has already reported a 25% increase in contacts after the start of the COVID-19 lockdown.

The Domestic Violence and Abuse elearning package aims to equip health visitors and nurses with the skills and knowledge to enable them to provide a proactive, responsive and safe service to families experiencing domestic violence and abuse.

The new content covers four new introductory modules to complement the existing sessions. The elearning has been developed following a refresh of the evidence, policy and legislation on domestic violence and abuse. Each of the four elearning modules last around 30-45 minutes.

The following sessions are now available:

  • Understanding domestic violence and abuse
  • Identification of domestic violence and abuse
  • Risk assessment for victims of domestic violence and abuse
  • Safety planning and support for families
