Working with culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities 

These reflections were collected at the third Community of Practice Forum held in June 2014, Working with culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities.

In order to share practice knowledge more broadly in the emerging field of PVAW, discussions were generated between advanced practitioners on their experiences working with CALD communities. This paper captures the themes and highlights of the conversation.

Managing difficult conversations

These reflections were collected at Managing difficult conversations, a VicHealth Community of Practice Forum held in April 2014.

Advanced practitioners shared the challenges and successes they experience when building relationships and communicating the key messages of preventing violence against women in a range of settings and roles. This publication captures the themes and highlights from the day.

This is just one way we are capturing and disseminating practice knowledge within the emerging PVAW field. 

Evaluating PVAW: the good, the bad and the ugly

These reflections were collected at the VicHealth Community of Practice Forum held in December 2013: Evaluating PVAW: the good, the bad and the ugly.

The forum aimed to generate discussion among advanced practitioners of primary prevention of violence against women about the challenges and opportunities emerging from their evaluation practice, and start identifying ways of building a stronger culture of evaluation.

This is just one of the ways we are capturing and disseminating practice knowledge within the emerging PVAW field.
