Significant Learning Review Child E

The learning from Child E has now been published online via a presentation kindly delivered by two members of the SCR sub committee; Fiona Miele, Lead Nurse for Child Protection, and Stuart Lamberton, Lead Officer ACC. This case had a very positive outcome with multi-agency practitioners displaying high levels of collaborative working, effectively using systems to share relevant information with other agencies and displayed clear evidence that staff in Aberdeen City are trauma informed. You can find this presentation below. We would encourage this briefing to be shared in team meetings where possible and it can equally be shared on a more service wide basis.

Below you will find the Significant Learning Review Report and 7 Minute Briefing on Child E:

Multi-agency Audit on the use of the NRF

This is the first audit from the 2020/21 audit programme under the Quality Assurance Framework. Findings in the Joint Inspection 2019 and in local ICRs and SCRs have noted the variable use and quality of National Risk Framework tools and chronologies. These tools are found in the “National Risk Framework to Support the Assessment of Children and Young People” (2012). This audit topic and outline remit was agreed at the CPC to consider “How well do we use the National Risk Assessment Framework tools in assessing risk for children and young people?” Please click the video link before for a very short presentation covering the good practice and areas for improvement identified in this audit as well as the next steps taken by the CPC. The full NRF audit report that was presented to CPC is also linked below.

Child H 7 Minute Briefing

The learning from Child H has now been published online via a 7 minute briefing which can be found below. This case identified learning themes which included cumulative neglect involving a child with complex health needs, parental resistance, effective chronologies, professional challenge and curiosity, the revolving door of services over many years, and trauma informed practice. In the video clip below Hannah introduces the 7 minute briefing which is also attached separately for ease of use. We would encourage this briefing to be shared in team meetings where possible and it can equally be shared on a more service wide basis.

Multi Agency Neglect Audit + 7 Part Briefing 

The learnings from the Multi Agency Neglect Audit have now been published online via a 7 part briefing which can be found below. The audit findings showed that practitioners are positively identifying and responding to neglect. Areas for improvement were also identified, specifically looking at increasing confidence levels in naming neglect with families and recording the impact of cumulative neglect. 

 

 

 

Multi Agency Audit on Children with Disabilities 

The purpose of this audit was to look at why children with disabilities have been overrepresented in significant and initial case reviews conducted by Aberdeen City CPC since September 2017. This issue comes up repeatedly, yet there are low numbers of children with disabilities on the Child Protection Register or subject to Joint Investigative Interviews.

We wanted to establish:

• If we are missing opportunities to respond to wellbeing, or care and protection concerns of children with disabilities at the earliest opportunity.

2 • Whether our response to child protection concerns is as robust for children with disabilities as it would be for concerns relating to a child who does not have a disability.
