Summary: 


Confronting Gender-Based Violence (GBV) is a CCGHE distance learning initiative developed to to improve the clinical and psychosocial care of individuals (female and male) who have survived and/or are at risk for GBV. Originally developed as a facilitated course with 39 participants, Confronting GBV has since been configured into a self-paced, online format and is available to CCGHE website users at no charge. The online course is comprised of 21 lectures organized into 3 modules: Routine Screening for GBV in the Health Care Setting; Clinical Care for GBV Survivors; and Psychosocial Support for GBV Survivors. Lectures are delivered by global experts working in the area of GBV and range from 15 to 30 minutes in length. Each module includes a pre- and post-test to measure improvement among key knowledge areas, and a Certificate of Achievement is available; the self-paced, online course has had more than 240 participants.
