Working with Torture Survivors - An Introduction for Healthcare Professionals

Many doctors have patients who are refugees or asylum seekers. A significant proportion of those patients will have experienced traumatic events, including torture, and have complex health needs as a result. Doctors may feel that they lack the specialist knowledge required to support this group. At Freedom from Torture we have 40 years’ experience of working with survivors of torture, supporting them to rebuild their lives.

Designed by experts from our Clinical Services team, this 10-module course is designed for all doctors and healthcare professionals providing care for refugees and asylum seekers who may have experienced torture.
