This introduction sets the scene for six further Level 3 Safeguarding Children and Young People sessions. Each session examines a common safeguarding scenario. You will explore what safeguarding children means for you as a member of clinical staff working with children, young people and/or their parents/carers and how you work with others to protect children and promote their health and well-being.

You might be a GP, paediatrician, paediatric allied health professional, sexual health staff, school nurse, health visitor, children's nurse, midwife, child psychologist, or one of the many other members of the clinical staff included in Safeguarding Children and Young people: roles and competences for health care staff. This intercollegiate document (ICD) sets out the competences all health staff must have to help them recognise child maltreatment and to take effective action as appropriate to their role.


By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Define your role as a health care professional in relation to safeguarding children
• Identify any gaps in your current level of knowledge and skills in relation to safeguarding children
