GPs’s responses to possible child maltreatment (abuse and neglect): a mixed methods study
Supervisors: Ruth Gilbert, Marian Brandon (University of Norwich), Danya Glaser (UCL Institute of Child Health and GOS), Irene Petersen (UCL Department of Primary Care and Population Health)
Summary: My PhD aims to describe and understanding how General Practitioners (GPs) currently respond to children and families who prompt concerns about (possible) maltreatment. I am analysing a large primary care dataset (The Health Improvement Network – THIN), developing a GP-led consensus about recording concerns and conducting interviews & observations with primary care professionals in England.
