WorkUP Queensland is pleased to announce the first successful practice studio host!  

Congratulations to the Cairns Sexual Assault Service who were inspired by the Trauma and Violence Informed Framework, to propose a practice studio to embed this model within their service and within other local services. The framework developed through the Women’s Input to a Trauma-informed systems model of care in Health settings: The WITH study.  

Cairns Sexual Assault Service will be testing the implementation of evidence and learning what it takes to bridge the research to practice gap. Information generated from the practice studios will form a resource for the sector, so we can all learn together.  

We are close to announcing a further two practice studio hosts and more information will be coming about those soon.  

We have also commenced consultation with the sector via the Reference Group to determine the round two practice studio topics. WorkUP will keep you posted via our website, our Facebook group (WorkUP Qld) and our newsletter on the progress of the studios. We’ll share the latest news, updates and individual spotlights or case studies. If you haven’t connected with us yet, head to our website and subscribe to get regular updates.
