Event description

Description

The Leadership Council for Domestic Violence and Health Care (DVHC)—a network comprised of leading health and DV service providers in Los Angeles—in partnership with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health Office of Women’s Health and Domestic Violence Council, is hosting its first annual symposium, Beyond Silos: Domestic Violence and Health Care Partnerships on Tuesday, October 29, 2019, at The California Endowment in Los Angeles. This symposium will feature health care and advocacy leaders who are pioneering advancements in cross-sector collaboration between the health and domestic violence (DV) sectors to promote prevention and early identification of DV; improve the safety net for survivors and their health needs; and promote systems change across Los Angeles in a way that better addresses DV as a public health issue.


Registration and Breakfast begins at 8:30 AM
Program will begin promptly at 9:00 AM


By the end of the symposium, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify domestic violence (DV) as a public health issue and important social determinant of health;

  2. Understand the health impacts of violence;

  3. Promote cross-sector collaboration between domestic violence advocacy programs and health care;

  4. Improve early identification, DV response and survivor health within health care and DV advocacy program settings;

  5. Foster networking opportunities between health care and DV service providers in Los Angeles.


Breakout Sessions:

  1. Innovative Approaches to Culturally Responsive Partnership Models

    Cross-sector collaboration can take many forms, especially to effectively serve specific communities. This session will highlight three programs working to build capacity and cultural responsiveness among health care and DV service providers to be able to better serve marginalized communities impacted by violence through expanded programming that promotes prevention while addressing early identification of abuse, the provision of trauma informed care and response, and access to services that would otherwise not be accessible for those who need it most.

  2. Beyond Domestic Violence Screening: Partnering with Patients for Prevention, Safety & Healing

    Healthcare providers can play an important role in preventing and responding to domestic violence. This session will outline a patient-centered intervention that promotes healthy relationships, supports survivors, and builds partnerships with domestic violence advocates.

  3. Working in Partnership to Breakdown Silos in Los Angeles County

    Four DV programs in Los Angeles partnered with the Department of Public Health to promote and improve countywide systems change that addresses the intersections of DV and health care. This session will highlight successful partnership models, including sustainability and impact, and outline strategies for scaling organization-level systems change within public health that foster widespread cross-sector collaboration to promote prevention; strengthen services/support for marginalized survivors; and address and respond to trauma and the health impacts of violence.

  4. The Domestic Violence & Health Collective - OC: A Regional, Interdisciplinary Approach to Addressing Domestic Violence as a Public Health Issue

    Come learn about the Domestic Violence & Health Collective - Orange County (DVHC-OC), a groundbreaking 5-year initiative designed to strengthen the healthcare sector’s response to DV and improve linkages between the healthcare sector and social, shelter and legal services for DV survivors in OC. This session will discuss the origins of the initiative, funding structure, implementation of specific strategies (Cross-Disciplinary Training for healthcare and social service providers; Central Clearinghouse for information and referrals; Public Health Campaign to normalize discussion about DV in healthcare settings; and Assessment of the Mental Health & Substance Abuse Needs of DV Survivors), as well as evaluation findings and key insights from the initiative.





Space is limited. Please register by Friday, October 11, 2019.
