The significant role of General Practitioners in the provision of care to patients who are both experiencing and using violence and have concurrent mental health and/or alcohol and other drug issues has been highlighted in the recent NSW Domestic Violence Death Review Team report. This webinar aims to give GPs improved confidence and skills in recognising and responding to people using violence where there are co-occurring mental health and substance misuse issues.
