Safe Children Conference 2019 | Summary Program
Safe Children Conference 2019 | Promote the welfare of children
All medical professionals irrespective of role, grade or position promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm. They know it is not okay to do nothing if they have any information that a child has been, is being or is at risk of being abused or neglected. Building a culture of patient safety and quality of care is of paramount to hospitals, dental practices, psychologists etc..both are very powerful drivers of reform and improvement in services. Improvements in the medical industry have already been made and others are underway.

It arms delegates with tools to create a safe child environment as well as Government updates and the latest information from The Children’s Guardian, The National Office for Child Safety and Child Wise.
