The online course aims to give the trainee an understanding of the processes involved in safeguarding children. This includes understanding the terminology used in child protection, the timeline of an investigation and the roles of the multidisciplinary team. The course aims to take the participant through a child protection case from start to finish.
At the end of the module, there is an opportunity to write a child protection medical report for the case. This will be reviewed by one of the course creators, Dr Sarah Dawkins, a consultant community paediatrician and feedback will provided to the trainee via a DOCs on Kaizen. This is a brilliant opportunity to practise writing a report and receive individualised feedback from an experienced consultant.
