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.
This includes health care students, clinical laboratory staff, pharmacists , ambulance staff, dentists, dental care practitioners, audiologists, opticians, adult physicians, surgeons, anaesthetists, radiologists, nurses working in adult acute/community services (including practice nurses), allied health care practitioners and all other adult orientated secondary care health care professionals, including technicians.
This insightful course covers the background to safeguarding children, child abuse awareness, how to recognise abuse and neglect, what to do as a health professional with a concern and how to respond to a disclosure.
Note: If you’re a member of staff who could potentially contribute to assessing, planning, intervening 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 (Levels 1 and 2) – for Health course instead.
