As a lecturer i found this text very useful there are many activities that encourage learners to reflect, enabling them to develop their knowledge on safeguarding but also develop their reflective practice.
An interesting text however some errors noted re spelling in early part of work.
A useful source of information however.
Clear and contemporary information that is relevant for all public health nurses and health visitors.

It is particularly welcome to see Scottish policy and practice threaded throughout the book as many similar textbooks tend to focus on policy and practice in England. However, it is important to point out that there have been some important legislative changes within Scotland since the book was published which will impact on practice.
I really like this book, so useful and relevant not just to nurses but all healthcare professionals.

I am very impressed with this text. The way it is presented enables practitioners and students to grasp the basics whilst appreciating the complexities of safeguarding children. The case studies are effective and the use of theoretical models and research enhances the impact of the content. I will be recommending this text for our pre-registration nursing students.
interesting book gives a good insight into this very topical area in healthcare
This is an understandable and interesting read. I thought that the reflective activities were good and the book itself covered the key themes. Good scenarios used throughout.
