Child Protection & Wellbeing in General Practice


Webinar summary

6 June 2018

GPs are pivotal in supporting vulnerable and at risk children and their families. Determining the level of risk and harm to a child or young person and what action to take can be challenging. As well as medical referrals, GP's may need to assess safety, or refer to counselling or family support services.

This webinar informs GP's about NSW Health's Child Wellbeing Unit where you can share your concerns about children's safety, find out about previous child protection reports, discuss ways to support the family and learn about information sharing legislation and mandatory reporting.
