The prevalence of domestic violence means that student dentists encounter traumatised women in their clinical practice. In 2015, student dentists identified that they were feeling inadequately prepa...

Field Education is recognised as a fundamental learning space for Social Work students to link theory to practice. The AASW provides Field Education guidelines (ASWEAS, 2012) that inform requirements, roles & responsibilities, location of placements and evaluation. The liaison role is identified as critical to field education and is clearly articulated in the ASWEAS standards (2012), yet there is limited literature expanding on the performance or evaluation of the liaison role.

JCU students report feeling ill-prepared for responding appropriately to women who experience DV. An innovative partnership between Dentistry, Social Work and the Cairns Regional Domestic Violence Service collaboratively addressed this problem through an educational intervention and evaluation.

The role of student dental practitioners in recognising, responding and appropriately managing domestic violence within a clinical setting in regional, rural and remote communities has not been investigated previously in Australia. Whilst extensive clinical training is provided to students throughout undergraduate dental degrees, anecdotal reports suggest that they feel ill-prepared for responding appropriately in both practice and the community to women who experience domestic violence. This pr...

[Extract] here has been much debate regarding spiritualty's role in social work over the past three decades. The dust has settled and there appears to be a general acceptance now that, not only can there be a role for spirituality in social work, but that it is an important inclusion in order to work with the whole person. However, when it comes to guides to, or consensus on, how one should practice when integrating spirituality, gaps remain. In order to contribute to the discipline's attempts t...

This report documents the results of a preliminary investigation into the practice model that has been central to the Douglas House Supported Housing Service since its inception in late 2014. Neither the service nor the model had been formally evaluated, however, anecdotal evidence from staff and external agencies suggest that the service is achieving identified outcomes, with staff attributing much of the agency’s success to their commitment and implementation of th...
