We offer up our admiration for all the members of the RACGP White Book 5th edition Expert Advisory Group.
The dedication and commitment to create a resource for GPs to address the complex and systematic abuse of people in intimate partner and family settings has been exceptional.
This has been one of the most profound opportunities that we have had as advocates for lived experience survivors to bring about real change. It represents a lifetime of dealing with the consequences of abuse, and the opportunity to work alongside each other as survivor advocates with a group of compassionate, determined health experts.
We recognise the constraints that GPs face. Hopefully this new edition of the White Book can further contribute to removing these obstacles and support GPs in their indispensable role in the health response to domestic abuse and family violence.
AW and ZDS,
The WEAVERs Group
