Abstract
Gender-based violence (GBV) is a persistent and pervasive public health problem and requires a collaborative response, especially from the health system. Health-care professionals (HCPs) are uniquely positioned to address GBV because they are often the first trusted professional that survivors interact with. Therefore, it is critical that HCPs are trained and equipped to provide an effective response. This capstone evaluates the uptake of Gender-Based Violence: We All Can Help, an online GBV Learning Series for HCPs in British Columbia. Evaluation findings revealed a low uptake to the learning series and identified logistical and internal barriers that HCPs face. This capstone uses the Theory of Planned Behavior to structure and understand these barriers to series’ uptake. Finally, recommendations, informed by literature and evaluation data, are offered to improve uptake of the series to ultimately strengthen the health sector’s response to GBV.
