First you need to think about the different sources here anne. What do you think is the difference between you actually seeing evidence of abuse (direct observation), a colleague telling you that she has seen evidence (reliable source), a colleague telling you that the bruises she has observed are obviously signs of abuse even thought they could equally have a innocent explanation (opinion) and a parent telling you that they have heard from someone else that....(hearsay). How will you react to each of these situations in terms of how you record the information and the steps you take as a consequence?

Anne,

 

Glad you've managed to write something! This is a difficult unit but one that is important to get right. :) Most of it is common sense - the hard bit is making sense of the NVQ speak. :o
