A practical approach to child protection and supervisory neglect

A practical approach to child protection and supervisory neglect

Debbie Scott and Daryl Higgins

This webinar considered the theoretical understanding of neglect and adequate supervision.

This webinar was held on 11 December 2012.

There is no universally accepted definition of "neglect" or "adequate supervision", however both play a role in child wellbeing, particularly in terms of injury prevention.

In this webinar, Debbie Scott and Daryl Higgins considered the theoretical understanding of neglect and adequate supervision, and explored differences in identification of supervisory neglect between diverse groups of professionals. The use of a public health systems approach was proposed as a practical strategy to minimise the occurrence and outcomes of supervisory neglect.
