Free MOOC -“Confronting Gender Based Violence: Global Lessons for Healthcare Workers”
Global Health eLearning Center
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 starts June 5th, 2017.
