    This handy pocket-size guide would be a helpful resource for professionals/students to easily carry around with them when at work/on placement. This text is ideal for those wishing to top-up and refresh their knowledge from previous training courses, as it offers a generous overview of the topic of safeguarding.I like the fact that the text is divided into clear and concise sections. The content page at the beginning allows you to pick up the text and be able to refer to the relevant sections for particular issues. I like the inclusion of text boxes with key points, case studies, and diagrams. I specifically like the fact that case studies are included, as they offer some context to the theory and directly address the reader to consider what they may do in their own practice in different situations.I like the fact that there are sections on 'Families and Family Diversity' and 'Domestic Violence'. I think that these are really relevant topics to the issue of safeguarding that are often overlooked in other texts on the subject area.I feel that the text does well in balancing theory relating to definitions, policy and legislation with practical examples and subjective thoughts. For a relatively short text there is a good and extensive bibliography, which will allow readers to go on to do further reading and research should they wish to.Overall, I feel that this text offers a good overview and background knowledge of issues relating to child protection and safeguarding. I think that this text would be ideal for both novice and intermediate readers, i.e. perhaps students on placements, or those professionals who want a handy guide to refresh their learning when they are in the workplace and an issue arises. I found the text easy to read and I believe that this would be a very useful text. I also think that in addition to nurses there is a key audience of students who attend placements as part of their courses, for instance those going into Social Work or Health & Social Care settings, including schools.

    This little pocket guide provides all the information needed for a student/qualified nurse on the ward involved in the recognition of safeguarding issues. The guide takes you through identifying the different forms and categories of abuse which are then followed up with excellent case studies, encouraging you to reflect on your reading. It is, of course, intended to be used in conjunction with individual hospital policies and training but highlights perfectly the role of the student nurse as a safeguarding `alerter'. I liked how the reader is given the opportunity to read case studies and make their own decisions as to what the issue will be; this is a nice contrast to the `led' case studies after each section where you know what type of abuse to look out for. There is a brief background of safeguarding given but this isn't overly extensive; you wouldn't need to know about Victoria Climbié when faced with a potential emotional abuse case! The four categories of abuse each have a dedicated chapter; a sufficient amount of detail is given which when used with background knowledge. I really like this little guide and can see myself referring to it (subtly of course) while on placement. Safeguarding is a huge concern in paediatrics and everyone needs to be aware of what to look out for and what to do; I feel like the survival guide sums this up nicely.
