The Australian Medical Association NSW in partnership with Women’s Legal Services NSW has recently launched a new domestic violence resource for doctors.
The resource was developed in response to indications that one in five women experiencing domestic violence will first report it to her GP. The resource will assist doctors in identifying and responding to women and children who have previously experienced or are currently experiencing family or domestic violence.
The resource, titled ‘When she talks to you about the violence’, contains a list of indicators to help a GP identify domestic violence and guidelines for patient care from a range of sources, as well as some legal information relevant to the role of the general practitioner.
We are recruiting for a dynamic person who enjoys working in a client facing role to assist people

students in client intake. This is an identified role for an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person
