Safeguarding concerns: How do I start the conversation? - 15th November 2024

Please note: If GOSH places are full, please email to be added to the waitlist, as it is likely a place will become available.

Do you ever feel worried about the safety of a family or child but unsure about how to proceed?

As the picture is often incomplete, we can feel hesitant about what to look out for and what to convey to families and colleagues.  Through case-based discussion, simulation, and a multidisciplinary approach, this course will empower you to take responsibility for getting safeguarding conversations started.

We will:

•Examine why, from a psychological viewpoint, the temptation to “turn a blind eye” to risk can be significant

•Discuss complex case examples and reflect on previous experiences of safeguarding concerns

•Clarify key information around safeguarding

Who should apply: This course is aimed at all patient-facing team staff

Date: Friday 15th November 2024

Session time: 10am to 4pm  (face-to-face)
