Safeguarding in Health
Delivered by Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) in partnership with the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH), the e-learning aims to meet statutory training requirements so that healthcare providers can ensure their teams are up-to-date with the issues surrounding Child Protection.
This training package is designed to help trainers develop training for staff (such as midwives, health visitors and social workers) to develop their skills in raising sensitive issues with pregnant women. It is designed to support the implementation of NICE guidance in maternity care with particular reference to CG110 Pregnancy and Complex Social Factors. It is also intended to have wider applicability to NICE guidance which requires health and social care professionals to raise sensitive issues.
