Community of Practice – Support for general practitioners

Brisbane South PHN, as part of the implementation of Recognise, Respond, Refer (RRR), have established a Community of Practice for General Practitioners (GPs) who do the pivotal work of recognising and responding to domestic and family violence (DFV) in the Brisbane South region. The Community of Practice aims to bring GPs with an interest in responding to DFV together to support one another, facilitate case discussions, and learn more about the DFV supports available for their patients. The Community of Practice sessions are facilitated by the RRR GP Clinical Advisor. To register to attend a Community of Practice event, please click the link to the Brisbane South PHN Education Calendar.
