Course overview:

Safeguarding is a multi-faceted and often complex arena, covering an expansive variety of abuse and neglect. For our first annual safeguarding conference, we wanted to explore a subject that is increasingly placing our children, young people, and adults at risk of harm as the current social economic climate continues to put pressure on our communities.

We will examine the various risks of exploitation, including current local and national trends and hear how life looks for vulnerable victims. We will also consider how we can build and maintain our own resilience when working in increasingly challenging environments, to improve engagement and outcomes for the patients we serve.

Key learning outcomes:

  • Identifying key themes and local context within the exploitation of children, young people, and adults.
  • Understand the impact of exploitation on local and national safeguarding services.
  • Examine recent case studies and reflect on current practices to improve the identification of exploitation in our roles.
  • Discover ways to enhance your professional curiosity and building your resilience to working with increasingly challenging caseloads, improving engagement and outcomes for you and your patients.

Target audience:

This event is open to all medical, nursing and midwifery staff.
