News from NNVAWI, August 2017
Greetings to our members! On behalf of the Communications Committee and the Board of NNVAWI, we are pleased to bring you the first of what we hope will be more regular briefings on the membership and our activities.
Next Conference: September 26-28, 2018!!
22nd Nursing Network on Violence Against Women International Conference 2018
On behalf of the NNVAWI Board of Directors and the Conference Co-Chairs, Dr. Marilyn Ford-Gilboe and Dr. Victoria Smye, we are thrilled to announce that the next NNVAWI conference will be held at the Pillar & Post Hotel in the picturesque village of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada.
Preconference: September 26, 2018
Conference: September 27 & 28, 2018
Niagara-on-the-Lake is easily accessible from two international airports: Toronto Pearson International Airport (Toronto, Canada) or Buffalo Niagara International Airport (Buffalo, New York, USA).
During your visit, you will have opportunities to stroll through this historic village to admire the beauty of the 19th century architecture, enjoy a play at the Shaw Festival, or take a quick trip down the road to take in the wonder and power of Niagara Falls!
Fall is one of the most beautiful times to visit Ontario! The leaves will be turning colour, the weather is perfect - and you will arrive in time for the harvest at the many vineyards located in the Niagara region.
The conference program will include innovative pre-conference workshops, opportunities for professional networking, incredible social events, a NNVAWI student breakfast, compelling keynote speakers and multiple platforms for NNVAWI members and colleagues to share their VAW research policy, practice and education work.
There will also be plenty of opportunities for NNVAWI members to be involved in the planning of this exceptional meeting. Stay tuned for more information about how you can help with activities such as reviewing abstracts, contributing to the planning of the conference program, and inviting your colleagues from across the globe to join us in Niagara-on-the-Lake, September 26-28, 2018.

A donation can be made directly on the NNVAWI website or by mailing a cheque (made out to The Nursing Network on Violence Against Women International), care of Dr. Donna Schminkey (NNVAWI Treasurer) at 1010 Forest Hill Road, Harrisonburg, VA 22801.
Things to know: NNVAWI + NHCVA
NNVAWI is a member of The National Health Collaborative on Violence and Abuse (NHCVA). This collaborative is comprised of “more than 30 national professional health associations, dedicated to reducing and addressing the health consequences of intimate partner violence (IPV) and abuse. Learn more about NHCVA and view a list of member associations”. Of most importance to NNVAWI is that NHCVA offers free resources and webinars featuring experts on key topics in health and domestic/sexual violence. Please go to http://nhcva.org/ for additional information and access to resources.
Annually our representative attends an in-person meeting where the collective meets to learn and update member organizations on activities and pressing policy issues in the field in addition to hosting a congressional briefing highlighting the impact of violence and abuse and health. Their mandate is to “advance health policy at the state and federal
Level by Partner with communities, advocacy organizations and other groups to promote societal and cultural change that reduces risks for violence and abuse; Develop the capacity of health professionals and the infrastructure of health systems to prevent and address the harms of current or past exposure to violence and abuse”
NNVAWI has been partner in endorsing and supporting key policy initiatives that affect women and children exposed to violence. Most recently NNVAWI endorsed a letter to both Senate party leaders to express concern over the American Health Care Act and lay out principles for any health reform proposals. It was also supported by several other member organizations including Futures, American Nurses Association, American Medical Association, and Academy on Violence to express concern over the American Health Care Act.
Recent developments: There is a new technical package for IPV from the CDC: https://www.cdc.gov/violenceprevention/pdf/ipv-technicalpackages.pdf
Please find some initial analysis of the new elements of the proposed health reform effort from the Senate: https://www.axios.com/the-new-things-in-the-senate-health-bill-2458546676.html
Member activity spotlight: Drs. Leesa Hooker & Angela Taft
Psychosocial resilience and risk in the perinatal period: Implications and guidance for professionals.
Australian NNVAWI members Professor Angela Taft and Dr Leesa Hooker have recently published a Domestic and family violence chapter in the clinical text Psychosocial resilience and risk in the perinatal period: Implications and guidance for professionals newly published by Routledge.
This international text, of most relevance to nurses, midwives and social workers, considers the underlying risk factors that create situations of psychosocial vulnerability and marginalisation for mothers, from conception to 12 months after birth. The book outlines how professionals can respond to women’s experiences of traumatic birth, domestic and family violence, drug and alcohol use and mothering by indigenous, same-sex and disabled women. The book explores the impact of disadvantage on women and the protective factors at an individual, community and service level. Each chapter discusses implications for care practices and health service delivery within Western models of maternity care.
The chapter on Domestic and family violence will be of interest to NNVAWI members and health care students. Topics includes prevalence of domestic violence in pregnancy, the ecological model of influencing factors, health and other impacts-including the impact of abuse on parenting and infants. Drawing on previous excellent work by our NNVAWI colleagues, we outline best practice health care service response, with discussion about routine domestic violence screening, ways of asking about abuse, and interventions to support women in the perinatal period. The text can be sourced from the link below.
