Safeguarding children

Jane Chudleigh Lecturer, Child Health, Department of Child Health, City University, London

Nurses are well placed to identify behaviour or circumstances that might signify a child is at risk and to contribute to measures designed to protect children. Legislation, guidance and local policies provide the framework for nurses to implement good practice in communication, documentation and multi-agency working to safeguard every child and young person with whom they have contact.
