More about this course

This is not a course about the clinical detection or escalation of safeguarding concerns

The aim of the course is to help providers design the administrative procedures in place that they need for safeguarding

The focus of the course is the United Kingdom but the principles covered in the course, and the procedures presented, should apply anywhere.
