Violence and Health Research

The Violence & Health Research Program at WCRI aims to be an international leader in health-based research about violence against women. The Violence and Health program focuses on the impact of violence on women's health and the health system's response to women's needs. Researchers embrace a multidisciplinary view of health, encompassing psychosocial, biological, and environmental determinants.

Researchers in the Violence and Health program include Dr. Janice Du Mont and Dr. Robin Mason. Dr. Du Mont frequently collaborates with clinicians from the Ontario Network of Sexual Assault/Domestic Violence Care & Treatment Centres (SA/DVTCs) and its provincial coordinator Sheila Macdonald. These studies explore best practices in sexual assault care and are designed to improve care across the province.
