Strengthening Hospital Responses to Family Violence State Wide Forum 2019

Successes and Sustainability

On Monday, 3 June 2019, Bendigo Health hosted the fourth annual Strengthening Hospital Responses to Family Violence (SHRFV) Statewide Forum at the Conservatory within the All Seasons Resort Hotel in Bendigo.

The theme of the forum was "Successes and Sustainability" and it was officially opened by the Hon. Gabrielle Williams, Minister for Prevention of Family Violence, Minister for Women, Minister for Youth. Over 170 delegates from across the state attended the forum and enjoyed the presentations given by the International and national key note speakers, along with a mix of rural, regional and metropolitan SHRFV staff speakers. Feedback from attendees was overwhelmingly positive and we are very pleased to provide videos of the presentations in the links below.
