Chaperoning In Primary Care

£24.99

This online Chaperoning In Primary Care course has been designed for non-clinical staff, such as GP receptionists, who may be required to act as a chaperone and need some formal training.

All medical consultations, examinations and investigations are potentially distressing. Patients can find examinations, investigations or photography involving the breasts, genitalia or rectum particularly intrusive. These examinations are called ‘intimate examinations’. Cultural factors should be considered. This is important when examinations are performed by members of the opposite sex. Also, any consultations where patients may feel vulnerable.

Importantly, children and young people should be provided with chaperones. GMC guidance states that a relative or friend of the patient would not be an impartial observer. As such they would not usually be a suitable chaperone.

Our Chaperoning In Primary Care course has been written in line with guidance from the General Medical Council, the Royal College of Nursing, The Medical Defence Union, The Medical Protection Society, the NHS and the CQC.
