Support Service for Designated Centres Providing Medico-social Services for Sexual Assault Victims

 

In partnership with designated centres

 

Support Service for Designated Centres Providing Medico-social Services for Sexual Assault Victims (Support Service) supports members of medico-social teams (counsellors, nurses and doctors) in the designated centres by responding to their clinical, organizational and training needs.

 

The Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux (MSSS) mandated the MSAC to establish a provincial coordinating body for the designated centres responsible for providing medico-social intervention services to victims of sexual assault.

 

This led to the creation, in July 2019, of the Support Service for Designated Centres Providing Medico-social Services for Sexual Assault Victims (Support Service). Its mandate is to support the members of the medico-social teams (counsellors, nurses and doctors) in the designated centres by responding to their clinical, organizational and training needs.

 

Since then, the Support Service has identified and responded to the needs of medico-social teams across the province. Through various communication methods, it offers networking modalities and online training as well as updated tools to support medico-social intervention work. It also facilitates intersectional collaborations and allows a synthesis of the needs of the designated centres in order to make overall recommendations to the MSSS.

 

Services:

 

  1. Receiving and responding to inquiries
  2. Compiling needs
  3. Setting up networking possibilities and guidelines
  4. Responding to training needs
  5. Drafting recommendations
  6. Creating a standard data collection form
  7. Updating medico-social intervention tools
  8. Facilitating intersectoral collaboration

 

 

If you work for a designated centre, sign up for Support Service’s Members Page. It offers curated and exclusive content for medico-social teams, for management personnel in designated centres and regional supervisors responsible for sexual assault resources. It provides ongoing training and access to work tools and to encourage the sharing of information and expertise among designated centres.
