Lunch & Learn - Bruising Policy
Date & Time:
Target audience: We are holding these Lunch & Learn event to raise awareness of the HSCP Management of Suspicious Bruising/Marks in Infants under Six Months Policy (previously known as the Bruising Protocol). This event is aimed at all front line practitioners and managers working with children.
Aim: To ensure practitioners are aware of the Policy, know where to access the Policy, feel confident using the Policy and to encourage discussing the Policy in team meetings or supervision. Research demonstrates that babies under six months rarely bruise and therefore, decision making cannot be made in isolation by professionals and must involve the multi-agency.
