HOW SHOULD THIS BE ACHIEVED?
There is an expectation by Worcestershire Safeguarding Children Board that training should be multi-disciplinary and inter-agency, and delivered internally and externally
It could include:
• personal reflection
• scenario-based discussion, drawing on case studies, serious case reviews, lessons from research and audit
• regular multi-professional and/or multi-agency staff meetings
• vulnerable child and family meetings
• clinical updating
• clinical audit
• reviews of critical incidents and significant unexpected events
• peer discussions
• education sessions which could be a combination of e-learning or attendance at internal or external outside training courses.
GPs have a responsibility to ensure that all staff across their organisation have the knowledge and skills to be able to meet this requirement
Evidence of such learning has to be demonstrated at appraisal confirming that each member of staff is up to date and has the relevant skills, competencies and knowledge to safeguard and promote the welfare of children (as defined in the Intercollegiate Document 2014)
