Domestic violence: What is really going on?
A 48 year old woman with advanced primary progressive multiple sclerosis confides in her MS nurse about being physically, sexually and mentally abused by her husband. She is wheelchair bound (EDSS 8.0) and relies on her husband, her carer, for activities of daily living.
This webinar will cover safe guarding legislation and how to approach and manage a problem of physical, mental or sexual abuse in vulnerable patients.
