Currently, there is limited information on how Australian medical students are prepared to respond to the long-term needs of patients who have experienced sexual violence. This study explores Australian medical student experiences of learning in the area of sexual violence, as well as their confidence and ‘preparedness’ in responding to the consequences of sexual violence as new doctors. We hope that this will aid us in identifying and developing a best practice model for medical teaching and learning in the area of sexual violence, and thus provide better long-term care to survivors of sexual violence.
You are invited to participate in this survey. This is a national survey of all medical students across the country and your response is really important to us.
The survey is co-ordinated by A/Prof. Jan Coles, with the Victorian Medical Women’s Society. It should take no more than 10 minutes to complete and your responses will be kept confidential.
