About the Project

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the rapid change in the provision and delivery of safeguarding practice, from traditional ‘face to face’ care that facilities the visual observation of dynamics within the home, to a reliance on digital technologies. This rapid adoption of the use of digital interventions has presented challenges to service users and the workforce.

This PhD seeks to explore the use of Digital Technologies in the safeguarding practice of children and young people from healthcare providers’ perspective. A systematic review of current evidence evaluating the use of digital technologies in safeguarding practice and training will be conducted. A Delphi study will be used to enable a consensus of what should be included for the digital training tool. A training programme will then be co-produced and a stakeholder advisory group of healthcare professionals involved in safeguarding practice will enable testing for face validity of the digital training tool.
