Abstract

This article presents a discussion of key issues for the education of nurses, midwives and health visitors following the completion of a Department of Health funded project, managed by the General Social Care Council and conducted jointly by two research centres; Salford Centre for Social Work Research and Salford Centre for Nursing, Midwifery and Collaborative Research. The work was initiated in response to Lord Laming’s report on the circumstances leading to the death of Victoria Climbie´. The project was conducted in relation to specified professions and occupational groups: doctors; health visitors; midwives; nurses; police; teachers, and social workers. It was undertaken in two stages. The first stage mapped existing material about standards in relation to education and training for interagency working. The second stage engaged in an extensive consultation exercise through which a model and a set of proposed standards for interagency education and training for interagency work were developed. The former is detailed fully in this report, while nine examples of standards are presented. The project final report was presented seven months after commencement.
