Information Sharing Recorded Webinar (RW002)

Lack of, or poor information sharing is a key factor repeatedly identified in many serious case reviews carried out following the death of or serious injury to a child.

Fears about sharing information cannot be allowed to stand in the way of the need to safeguard and promote the welfare of children at risk of abuse or neglect. Every practitioner must take responsibility for sharing the information they hold.
