Information SharingFri 24 May 2024FULLY BOOKEDAucklandNo Charge

Lack of, or poor information sharing is a key factor repeatedly identified in many serious case reviews carried out following the death of or serious injury to a child.

Fears about sharing information cannot be allowed to stand in the way of the need to safeguard and promote the welfare of children at risk of abuse or neglect. Every practitioner must take responsibility for sharing the information they hold.

Take this course to make sure you know the changes in legislation that allow and support you as a practitioner to share crucial information regarding children’s wellbeing and safety.

DisclosuresTues 11 Jun 20249.30am - 12.00pmNelsonNo ChargeREGISTEREvidence from child abuse survivors shows that for the vast majority of children, their disclosure journey was negative. There were numerous missed opportunities for intervention and support identified along these journeys. Negative journeys were characterised by poor responses from those to whom they had disclosed, lack of support, particularly emotional support, and a lack of protective action taken. Recognising a disclosure, and how you respond is vitally important to ensure children and young people feel believed and can access the support they need.
