Innovative domestic abuse and sexual violence programme launches in Devon and Torbay
IRIS programme rolls out across Devon and Torbay
A national programme to help GPs identify patients experiencing domestic abuse or sexual violence and refer them to specialist support services is being rolled out across Devon and Torbay.
Identification and Referral to Improve Safety (IRIS) is a successful general-practice based domestic abuse and sexual violence training and referral programme developed and coordinated by the social enterprise, IRISi.
It’s the first of its kind in the area and will see domestic abuse and sexual violence specialists work in partnership with local clinical leads to co-deliver training and support in up to 50 general practices across Devon and Torbay.
