Paediatricians at all levels play a crucial role in safeguarding and child protection. It's vital for the health and wellbeing of children and young people that you are able to execute your duties effectively.

Therefore we are interested in finding out about how you achieve the safeguarding competencies appropriate to your role,your confidence that you can achieve these competencies and what is available to support you to do so. There are also some specific questions about the safeguarding SPIN module - your thoughts about this would be appreciated as well.

Your responses will be used to redesign safeguarding training where possible and help reshape the safeguarding SPIN to make it more accessible for trainees and better support supervisors in their roles. They will be also be used to help inform the RCPCH as to how best to offer guidance, resources and education to all paediatricians on achieving safeguarding competencies.

Note this survey is not directed towards named and designated paediatricians (though the questions related to SPIN may be relevant). If you wish to discuss your learning and development needs relevant to this role, please contact Suma Surendranath (RCPCH Education and Professional Development Lead for Safeguarding Education)
