Safeguarding Children and Young People in the NHS
Children and young people can be extremely vulnerable in an NHS setting and it is therefore imperative to ensure that the quality of safeguarding care that they receive is exceptional and standardised across the country. This one day NHS conference will focus on a variety of safeguarding challenges and will share others’ experiences on tackling neglect, Fabricated or Induced Illness (FII), Prevent, bruising protocols, the child death review and collaborating with multi-agency teams.
By attending this one day NHS conference, you will come together with like-minded colleagues from across the country to discuss the solutions to your challenges and share your safeguarding experiences. You will leave the day with a fresh perspective on how you can make a change to the safety and protection of children and young people within the NHS.
By bringing in different perspectives, this conference will challenge your current reality with unique and dynamic engagement with paediatric safeguarding teams from across the country. Featuring:
- Progressing assessment and referral processes: spotting the signs and making changes for FII and implementing an innovative bruise protocol
- Collaborating with your wider MDT: working in partnership with other teams to improve processes for neglect and exploring the implications and advantages for collaborating with MASH
- Implementing change: building a plan to apply the updated child death review and determine how it will work for your team
- Utilising technological support: putting the Children Protection-Information Sharing system into place for your team
- Tackling societal challenges: tackling gang violence and knife crime by applying prevent in the healthcare setting
