Final conference


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


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


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


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 November 2021


We are now fifteen months into the STOP project and have managed to get to know each other but meeting in person should ease reflections and discussions. Thanks to the Spanish team for organizing it.

STOP Consortium Meeting June 2021


The third consortium meeting in the STOP project was decided in December as an unofficial, additional consortium meeting. The spring and summer of 2021 is a key period in the project and with our next consortium meeting scheduled for late November, the project group wanted this opportunity to check in on the progress of STOP and help keep momentum.

Inclusion of women has begun!


During the last couple of months, we have been working hard to make the final tweaks on our STOP intervention developed to support and empower women exposed to IPV in order to launch the service in our two sites in Denmark and Spain. Also, we have provided training programmes for the dedicated staff to conduct screening and video counselling with the pregnant women.

In March, the STOP project launched the eHealth intervention and in both Denmark and Spain, women now participate in the screening for IPV. Already, a number of women have scored above the threshold indicating violence in their partnerships and have been offered to participate in the STOP project.

Thus, we are in the process of collecting the first experiences with our video counselling and safety planning service. We look forward to sharing our experiences with you along the way.

Safety app finalized for STOP

The safety planning app that accompanies the video counseling has been finalized and is introduced to the women during their pre-sessions.

A safety plan is a personal and practical plan for the woman to minimize the risk of danger and exposure to violence. The purpose of a safety plan is to protect the woman in the best way possible from future violence. Creating a safety plan is a natural next step after having made a danger assessment of the woman.

The features of the app are emergency contacts, warning signs, strategies, general knowledge about domestic violence, a quick message function, a share my location function, a resource function, a diary, and general settings. The app is free, and available for iOS and Android. Each woman will download the app on her own smartphone from the App Store or the Google Play store and it will be available through the duration of the STOP project.
