Combating child sexual exploitation elearning module

Brook, the UK's largest young people's sexual health charity and the Department of Health have jointly developed an online elearning tool to help health professionals spot the signs of child sexual exploitation (CSE).

Combating CSE: an e-learning resource for healthcare professionals has been designed for use by all staff in healthcare settings – from doctors and nurses to receptionists, paramedics, and pharmacists.

Developed by Brook, funded by the Department of Health and created by Sponge, the tool is designed to help healthcare staff in preventing, identifying and responding to child sexual exploitation.

The elearning module uses video clips and anonymous case studies to develop staff’s knowledge of the signs of CSE.  It was extensively piloted with staff from a variety of different health roles, from frontline to back office.

The elearning module can be freely accessed, here.
