The Intercollegiate Documents (ICDs) state that GPs and Practice Nurses are to be regarded as “Level 3”. Did you know that Level 3 incorporates the learning required for levels 1 and 2? Are you new to safeguarding? Do you know your PiPoT from your LADO or do you find all the acronyms used in safeguarding frustrating? Do you find level 3 courses pitched at too high a level and assuming too much pre-knowledge? Often, the lower-level information gets missed out. Would you rather start at level 1 and build up? If yes, then this is the course for you. I will cover level 1 and level 2 requirements from the Intercollegiate Documents for safeguarding adults and children.
I will also cover what the intercollegiate documents are in case you haven’t heard of them and why they are important. I promise to make the training much more interesting and interactive than doing it online and I always try to make my training practical and relevant to Primary Care. And- this still counts towards your level 3 safeguarding training requirements. So it’s an all-round win-win!
I will cover all the Level 1 and 2 Learning outcomes from the ICDs, so for both Adult and children:
- The different types of abuse and how to recognise them
- The relevant legislation
- Know what action to take, who to report your concerns to and who to get advice from
- Which children are more vulnerable to abuse and exploitation and why
- Understand the impact of parental physical and mental health on the well-being of their children
- Understand local safeguarding structures and arrangements
- PiPoTs, LADOs and the meaning of other acronyms
- What to do if an adult doesn’t have mental capacity
- The significance of children and vulnerable adults not being brought to appointments
