A series of seminar sessions on gender based violence advocacy (GBV) for medical staff of the Emergency Unit of the Mures County Emergency Hospital successfully ended on Wednesday, September 3. The seminars were held in the framework of the IMPLEMENT project and had the main objective to train the units’ medical staff to better identify and offer support to victims of domestic violence and abuse that seek care within the emergency unit. After the seminar, the trainees declared that they feel better prepared to identify victims of domestic violence and refer them to the social assistants, who will act as GBV advocates. They also acknowledge that they better understand what a referral system is and how it works. We would also like to thank our trainers Melinda Gal, clinical lead, and Camelia Fiordean, GBV advocate for the work put into teaching the sessions.
