It is important to learn how medical appointments can be more supportive and patient-centered, especially if someone has experienced sexual assault. Conversation groups were designed as a live, online video session with medical professionals who answered questions about their practices with patients who had been sexually assaulted, including those with disabilities. This focus group details the findings from those conversation groups.
People with disabilities are often involved in the criminal justice system. It is important for victims to know that they have rights.
In this webinar, participants will learn what bullying is, how to respond to it, and how to get support.
