Family Violence information sharing briefing session

Family Violence information sharing briefing session

The Royal Commission into family violence found that appropriate sharing of information was crucial in keeping victim survivor’s safe and holding perpetrators to account. One of the 227 recommendations found that siloing information increased risk for victim survivors and enabled the behaviour of perpetrators.

Subsequently, the Victorian government has implemented Information Sharing Schemes in Victoria. These schemes are the:

  • Family Violence Information Sharing Scheme (FVISS)
  • Child Information Sharing Scheme (CISS)

To learn more about the scheme all employees especially those in roles and teams listed below are encouraged to attend an internal briefing session run by the Monash Health Family Violence team.

  • Allied Health Heads of Profession
  • Freedom of Information team
  • Allied Health Managers
  • General Managers
  • Social Work
  • Director of Clinical Operations
  • Mental Health (clinical and management)
  • Family Violence Unit
  • Nurse Coordinators
  • Release of Information team

The session will provide an overview of the scheme, the process, and referral pathways.
