Abstract

Background: The domestic violence recognise, respond and refer (DV RRR) training program, delivered by Dr Carrington and Ms Amanda Lee-Ross, has been targeted towards students in their clinical years of the JCU BOS program. The valuable program was developed based on the feedback provided by Year 5 BOS students in the past who asked for specific training for understanding patients who have experience domestic violence during their placement in rural and remote areas around Australia.

Aims of Study/Project: This study aims to bridge the gap by exploring the perceived preparedness of JCU alumni from 2016 and 2017 with recognising, responding and referring patients who have experienced domestic violence based on the training they were provided during their undergrad1,1ate degree. This research project builds on the previous DV evaluation projects conducted at JCU (H6553) by adding information on the long-term impact of the educational initiatives.

Methods: Recruitment of the graduates will be through emails. Each of the target alumni groups has an alumni representative who will be consulted to ensure that graduates have been notified of the study. An anonymous online survey will be employed on Survey Monkey to identify and document the perceived preparedness of JCU BDS graduates, who are one and two years out of university, for recognising, responding and referring appropriately, women who have experienced DV. This will evaluate the impact and effectiveness of the DV training delivered by Dr. Ann Carrington and Ms. Amanda lee-Ross, during the clinical years of the JCU BDS. Quantitative data will be collected through on line surveys distributed to 2016 and 2017 BDS graduates.

Results: The online survey has been finalised and will be employed once it has been checked for validity and reliability. Once responses have been collated, analysis of quantitative data will be achieved using SPSS statistics software and descriptive data through the use of T tests.

Conclusion/ Recommendations: Once the study is completed, a final report will be written with results and recommendations to the College.
