Violence affects health in many ways, from the micro (individual) to the macro (societal). This course will help you understand how healthcare professionals can build peaceful and healthy societies by recognizing, responding to, and helping prevent various forms of violence.
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
Recognise and respond to signs of domestic violence or torture in clinical practice
Provide appropriate healthcare in conflict areas and for refugees
Prepare for the health effects of climate change and nuclear war
This course has been created for people with some experience in healthcare. It is particularly relevant to students in clinical healthcare professions (such as medicine, nursing, and allied health) and equally relevant to those working in broader disciplines (such as public health, global health, and development studies).
