Overview
Curriculum
Reviews

Safeguarding children is a paramount responsibility in healthcare, encompassing a range of measures designed to protect children from harm, abuse, and neglect. It is of critical importance for healthcare workers to be well-versed in identifying signs of abuse and knowing how to report it. Children are among the most vulnerable members of society, and they often rely on healthcare professionals as potential advocates and protectors.

Identifying abuse can be challenging, as the signs may be subtle or easily mistaken for other issues. By developing the knowledge and skills to recognize signs of abuse and report concerns, healthcare workers play a crucial role in early intervention and prevention, helping to ensure the safety and well-being of the children they serve. This not only fulfils a moral and ethical obligation but also contributes to the overall quality of care provided by healthcare institutions.
