All Victorian health services play a vital role in the early identification and effective response to vulnerable children at risk of child abuse and neglect. All health services including hospitals, community health services, education organisations, alcohol and drug services, mental health and dental services need to have the knowledge to be able to identify and respond to vulnerability.
Campaspe, Central Victoria and Bendigo Loddon Primary Care Partnerships have produced this online professional development resource list that incorporates best practice webinars and information focusing on cultural competency.
We will be updating the resources regularly so please send any further resources and information to firstname.lastname@example.org
Resources are available to suit a number of learning styles and include websites, online learning, webinars, podcasts and reports. Anticipated read time for each resource has also been indicated:
