The Victorian Government will deliver $2.3 million for new initiatives to help Victoria’s allied health workers better respond to family violence.
As part of the latest round of the Advanced Practice in Allied Health Workforce grants program, 17 health services will share in funding to support 24 projects across the state.
The program supports allied health workers across Victoria to receive the training they need to build their skills and ability to ensure women experiencing family violence receive the right care, at the right time.
Northern Health is among the services that will run a project to help staff better respond to family violence.
