    Dear IMPLEMENT colleagues, on the basis of the experience of the capacity building seminars, if you should repeat one or more of them what would you change? Could you re-do them in a better way? Please, let’s talk!

    hallo to everyone.
    may be I’ll add some role play in the seminars, actually I didn’t because there were so many things to say and little time.

    Role playing of how to ask about domestic violence was an important part of the IRIS intervention, on which we modeled IMPLEMENT. Clinicians need to practice asking, because it isn’t easy…

    Would be good to know from the other teams what has been good (and less good) in delivering the seminars, both in terms of content and structure of the sessions, as well as the context (e.g. support from senior management, attendance etc)

    After starting implement Project I’ve found nurses to be more able to discover untold violence than doctors.

    We had three seminars done in one clinic her ein Schwelm/Germany for which staff had been obliged to go – and our two trainers found them to be not very motivated and quit hard to be trained. So we discussed the option to just give short (one hour) lecture-like trainings (doctors are really used to very short trainings), and then offer a really intensive training (at least four hours including many exercises) for the more motivated on. This way everybody would get the absolute important basics (supported by some handout) and others could become real strong supporters of the issue. ‘What do you think? Ulrike, Germany

    In the original IRIS study, we actually found more disclosures to doctors than nurses. We also found that nurses did not refer to the domestic violence advocates. What was the referral count by type of clinician in your pilot?

    We have struggled in the national roll-out of IRIS to resist the reduction of training time, not always successfully, so the original 2×2 hours sessions have, in some areas, been reduced to 2×1.5 hours.

    Whether it is worth delivering a one-hour lecture to the whole team and more intensive training to a minority, is difficult to answer in the abstract. We know that lectures are an educational method with least impact on learning or clinician behaviour change. On the the other hand, if some clinicians don’t want to have the more interactive training, it is probabaly appropriate to exclude them. But still not sure about the value of a stand-alone lecture
