LisaJane chats us through the pathways for identifying and supporting children at risk, how this fits into the Getting it Right For Each Child (GIRFEC) model and how this fits into a multi-agency approach for that child. 

Top 3 Points from this podcast:
  • Go with your gut, if you are feeling stressed or intimidated in an environment, imagine how a child feels within that environment
  • Don’t ever assume that someone else will escalate a concern on your behalf.  It doesn’t matter how many refferals are made they are still all relevant and there is power within those referrals
  • If you have any dubiety then escalate it, don’t ever disregard your own feelings in any situation.

About LisaJane:

Mary Munro is the clinical effectiveness lead for drug harm reduction in the North of Scotland, for the Scottish Ambulance Service.  Mary came to the Scottish Ambulance Service with experience in various substance use settings including: research, education, third sector and clinical inpatient and community nursing roles. People who use substances can often be seen and treated by society and health services as “less than” human, and we all have a part to play in changing these attitudes and cultures.
