NEW Free MOOC Course on "Confronting Gender Based Violence: Global Lessons for Healthcare Workers"

We are excited to announce that our colleagues at Johns Hopkins will be offering another free Massive, Open, Online course (MOOC) on Coursera on gender-based violence (GBV). In September and October 2015, they offered one that drew on case studies from India. This year's course titled, "Confronting Gender Based Violence: Global Lessons for Healthcare Workers," introduces learners to a global perspective on GBV, includes a review with Dr. Claudia Garcia-Moreno of the new WHO guidelines on responding to violence, and provides specific examples and programs from around the world.

After taking the course, learners will be able to:

  • Describe the global epidemiology of leading forms of GBV and the evidence linking GBV to poor health.
  • Articulate the challenges, strategies, and WHO guidelines for integrating GBV response within the health sector.
  • Describe the components of a comprehensive clinical assessment, treatment, and management of a GBV survivor.
  • Describe the appropriate psychosocial support and management of a GBV survivor.

The course runs from July 11 to August 7, 2016.
