If you work in any public-facing role in a healthcare environment, it’s vital that you know how to spot the warning signs of abuse and neglect, particularly in children.
Based on content from the 2006 Safeguarding Children and Young People: roles and competences for healthcare Staff Directive, this course help you spot the signs of child mistreatment and neglect and enable to you be sure you’re raising concerns appropriately.
This Safeguarding Children for Health Level 1 course will give you a good grounding in Safeguarding Children. It will explain child abuse awareness, how to recognise abuse and neglect, what to do if you’re a health professional with concerns about the children under your care as well as how to respond to a disclosure.
However, if you’re a member of staff who might be contributing to assessing, planning, intervening in and reviewing the needs of a child and parenting capacity where there are safeguarding concerns; and/or are responsible for making safeguarding referrals to the Police and Children’s Social Care, you may want to consider our Safeguarding Children for Health (Levels 1 and 2) course instead.
On completion of the course, you will automatically get a certificate, containing your name, CPD hours, the date and learning objectives.
You’ll also have access to additional resource materials, useful links and a refresher guide to keep for future reference.
The Health Safeguarding Framework identifies 6 levels of competence, and gives examples of groups that fall within each of these.
This course is intended for staff groups in Levels 1 and 2, i.e.:
Level 1: All non-clinical staff working in health care settings
This includes: receptionists, administrative, catering, transport and maintenance staff.
Level 2: All clinical staff who have any contact with children, young people and/or parents/carers.
