Completing child health assessments

| Leeds

Child health assessments are a key component in considering permanence planning for looked after children. This includes providing reports about the impact of a child's prenatal history. Up to 90% of young children currently being presented to adoption panels have been exposed to drugs and/or alcohol. Agencies are often under pressure to place a young child quickly. Medical advisers struggle with these cases because the child is too young for the full implications of this exposure to be apparent. This workshop is designed to support medical advisers in the dilemmas they face when advising social workers and potential carers in these circumstances.
