Level 3 Child Sexual Abuse

Event overview:

Child Sexual abuse affects 5-16% of children < 16 in the UK. That means if you have 1000 patients under 16 at your Practice you will have at least 50 to 160 victims on your list.

Are you confident in speaking to them about their abuse? Should you be examining them? Do you know what signs to look out for to confirm they have been abused? Do you know what help there is available for them? If you are unsure and want to increase your confidence in this area, then this level 3 training is for you.


1. The various ways that a child might present to you in Primary Care

2. How to ask children about sexual abuse

3. Case studies to illustrate:

• When it is OK to examine and when you shouldn’t
• The differential diagnosis of common paediatric genital conditions
• Being able to understand what you are seeing and how to manage the patient
• Knowing when and who to refer on to and local pathways
