These part-day face-to-face workshops pull together key risk factors and practice recommendations to help practitioners understand and act upon the learning from serious case reviews. Workshops highlighting the learning from serious case reviews that are conducted when a child dies, or is seriously injured, and abuse or neglect are suspected.
