Final conference

Management & Communication

To maximize the outreach of STOP’s final conference, it is decided to hold the conference adjacent
to the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. The conference is held at
University of Granada with participation of numerous public and NGO stakeholders. The
conference receives widespread media coverage, including newspapers and television. The STOP
team presents outcomes from the project; this is followed by discussions with the audience about
the feasibility of interventions against intimate partner violence centered around pregnancy,
interventions targeted migrant women, and the potential of centering the intervention around
pediatric care. The program for the event, a signed attendance list, and the presentation is attached
as appendices.

Communication platforms

Management & Communication

This document describes the communication platforms and channels of the STOP project.

The target group and focus area of STOP requires careful considerations in relation to the
communication and dissemination efforts of the project and project partners in order not to put
pregnant women exposed to IPV at any further risk. Therefore, the initial efforts are focused
around the project website to reach a wide audience and raise awareness of the activities the
project undertakes in relation to combatting intimate partner violence. During the project
lifetime, the communication and dissemination efforts will be adapted.

The visual identity of the project has been developed in order to both represent professionalism
and a softer feel related to the target group. This is reflected in the blue and coral red colours and
in the project logo showcasing a pregnant woman.

The STOP project website contains different pages in order to present both introductory
information about the project and the outputs that are developed during the project including
news items. The pages on the website are divided in:

– Home/Landing page
– About the project
– Partners
– Publications and Outcomes
– News
– Contact.

The communication activities will be updated on an ongoing basis and several means of
communication have already been considered. The project expects to utilise and will take into
account the social media channel Twitter, development of a project leaflet, and the development
of project merchandise.

Dissemination Plan

Management & Communication

Communication and dissemination in STOP are generally, but not exclusively, targeted to health
care professionals and other stakeholders. External communication efforts are centered around
the project’s website, which has serves as a repository of public deliverables and news titbits from
STOP. A logo for STOP is designed and used on project-related communications to provide a sense
of unity. Posters and an information flyer are developed specifically for use in the Danish antenatal
care settings to boost the screening effort and create awareness of the nature of IPV among
pregnant women. Internal communication is centered around near-monthly virtual status
meetings; six consortium meetings (three virtual and three in-person) are held. Dissemination
efforts are focused on professional events, with project members presenting the (preliminary)
results of STOP at conferences and project days in both Denmark and Spain. A final conference is
arranged as a dissemination seminar in November 2022 with participation from several
stakeholder organisations. Scientific dissemination of project results is ensured through scholarly
papers in relevant peer-reviewed journals.

Consortium Meeting in beautiful Granada

Management & Communication

On November 25-26, the STOP consortium reached quite a milestone. Not so much a milestone related to the project activities but a milestone for the collaboration.

After working together for more than a year, we finally managed to meet each other in person for the first physical consortium meeting in the project lifetime. The consortium met in beautiful Granada for a two-day meeting and Granada was the perfect location as the city celebrated the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on November 25th.

This consortium meeting focused on the current status of the project and we also started planning for 2022 which will be a(nother) busy year in the STOP project. During 2022, we will offer our services to thousands of women across the Region of Southern Denmark and Andalucia. We will also finalise the data collection and start working on the publication of our results and experiences from the project.

We look forward to sharing it!

STOP Consortium Meeting September 2020 - Kick Off Meeting

Management & Communication

During the STOP project’s Kick Off, the participants discussed and planned the work to be done in each work package. The practicalities of the different screening process and the screening tools and cutoff levels were debated. The timing of the training sessions for midwives was considered; both the Danish and the Spanish teams expressed concern that the original timing of the sessions was premature and that it would benefit the project to move the training closer to when the screening begins. The current flare-up of COVID-19 has further emphasized this need. Issues with inclusion and exclusion criteria were debated, and it was suggested that the involved midwives may have to play a larger role in determining whom to include. The features of the safety planning app were discussed in detail, and based on perceived applicability and usability, the participants agreed on which to include and which to scrap. As the STOP project could be an excellent opportunity to gain better insight into the prevalence of IPV, different studies to be part of the project were presented, along with a strategy for a multidisciplinary assessment the effects of STOP. The upcoming feasibility study and preparation of further studies on IPV was only briefly discussed, as this work is still some time away.
