Violence, Evidence, Guidance, and Action (VEGA) Project Backgrounder

2020-06-26

 
VEGA has developed an online platform of education resources comprised of learning modules (e.g., care pathways, scripts, how-to videos), interactive educational scenarios, and a handbook. The materials help equip providers, including students, for addressing the needs of people who may have experienced family violence. The resources are based on a series of systematic reviews summarizing the scientific evidence.

The VEGA resources are most useful in the context of a workshop or setting where discussion and role playing are possible, but can also be used for individual online training. The resources are available free of charge after registration.

To use the resources, go to https://vegaproject.mcmaster.ca/. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click “Register now”. Once submitted you will be sent a welcome email that contains your username, password, and login instructions.
