What is this learning resource for?
As a registered children's nurse or other health professional, you will be familiar with assessing and managing risk. This process commonly involves making expert judgements, grading or prioritising the perceived risk, and implementing measures to minimise this risk.
Assessing and managing risk with children and young people admitted to hospital with self-harm requires a different approach. Here, it is vital you work in collaboration with children and young people and their families to identify and minimise any risk. This learning resource will enable you to do this more effectively.
