Concerned about inflicted injury? A practical approach

Date: 18 May 2017

Venue: : British Dental Association, London
Organised by Orthopaedic Research UK
Whilst child and adult safeguarding is a part of mandatory training, medical and nursing staff still find the practical issues of handling these cases uncomfortable.

Our duty is to the patient in front of us. The intention of this course is to work through actual case scenarios of adult and child safeguarding issues and to reflect as to what the best hands on management would be.
