Although it is difficult to accept child and adult abuse does happen and is unfortunately an all too common occurrence. Any child or adult regardless of their age, gender, race, religion, culture or social background may be at risk of physical, sexual or psychological harm and a potential victim of abuse. There is however evidence to suggest that incidents of abuse can be reduced. This presentation will bring you up to date on the latest guidelines and provide you with the necessary guidance in how to deal with the important aspects of safeguarding.

Learning objectives:

  • Recognise abuse using 4 areas of analyses
  • Avoid common mistakes made in known safeguarding cases
  • Understand the barriers to share information
  • How to respond to disclosures of abuse
  • Understand the role of the safeguarding lead
  • How to avoid allegations of abuse in your practice

This talk satisfies the GDC’s learning outcomes:

A – Effective communication with patients, the dental team, and others across dentistry, including when obtaining consent, dealing with complaints, and raising concerns when patients are at risk

B – Effective management of self, and effective management of others or effective work with others in the dental team, in the interests of patients at all times; providing constructive leadership where appropriate

D – Maintenance of skills, behaviours and attitudes which maintain patient confidence in you and the dental profession and put patients’ interests first
