|Help to ‘stamp it out’|
Professor May-Chahal explains how NICE guidance will help protect children & young people from abuse.
For people whose work brings them into contact with children & young people, the guideline offers warning signs for spotting the signs of abuse & neglect, and advises how to respond. It gives effective advice on what assessments should be carried out, aiming to ensure children, young people and their families get the best quality care available.
To help raise awareness of the guideline and support people experiencing abuse & neglect NICE have also put together a quick guide for young people. The guide has been developed with the help of young people who have experienced abuse or neglect.Along with the guideline and the new quick guide, NICE has also produced a short quality standard that supports the steps commissioners should take to improve care. These resources can be found in one place on the NICE website.
