Around 1 in 12 people is exposed to domestic violence and abuse (DVA) during pregnancy. Researchers from Coventry University’s Research Institute for Health and Wellbeing and Faculty of Health and Life Sciences have come together with expert partners in the co-creation of a Massive Open Online Learning Course (MOOC). This MOOC offers evidence-based training to professionals around the globe looking to improve their skills in supporting those affected by domestic violence and abuse (DVA) during pregnancy. On this course, students will discover the research, guidelines and techniques for screening for DVA. Students will have the opportunity to enhance their ability to support safe disclosure in maternity settings and empower victims of DVA to explore options and seek further support.
