Description

This session is for ALL staff working in a healthcare setting - whether clinical (face to face contact with patients) OR non-clinical: e.g. reception, administrative, catering, transport and maintenance staff. It is basic safeguarding training. All staff who come into contact with children (whether clinical or not) and ALL clinical staff should complete Level 2.

Even thinking about the abuse of children is distressing, so it is important to know what to do if you are concerned that a child or young person might be or has been abused.

This session explains what safeguarding children and young people involves. You will learn about the range of child abuse and how you might be able to recognise abuse in a child or young person. The session goes on to look at what you should do if you are concerned that a child is being abused or neglected. It explains the steps you need to take in order to protect children from further harm. It is important to note that the term 'children' means children and young people from birth to their 18th birthday.

The session does not contain any photos or illustrations of injuries. If the session is very upsetting for you (possibly because of experiences in your own or other's lives) you should seek advice from your manager or occupational health department.

Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Describe the different forms of child maltreatment (physical, emotional, sexual abuse and neglect)
• Describe how common child maltreatment is and the impact it can have on a child or young person
• Indicate what you should do if you do have concerns about child maltreatment; including local policies and procedures, who to contact and where to obtain further advice and support
• Identify the importance of sharing information and the consequences of failing to do so
• Identify what to do if you feel that your concerns are not being taken seriously or you experience any other barriers when referring a child/family
• Describe the risks associated with the internet and online social networking
• Identify what the term 'looked-after child' means
• Recognise possible signs of child maltreatment that you might come across in your work
• Identify how to seek appropriate advice, report concerns and feel confident that you have been listened to
• Indicate a willingness to listen to children and young people and to act on their issues and concerns
• Show an awareness of the impact of FGM (Female Genital Mutilation), domestic violence and a carer's mental/physical health on a child
