CPD - FGM Awareness & Prevention Training

FGM stands for Female Genital Mutilation and is ILLEGAL and classed as child abuse in the UK.

This is the operation young girls (4-8yrs) face where their genitals are cut out, altered or damaged, often performed by people who are not medically trained, without the use of antiseptics and anaesthetics resulting in large amounts of pain and sometimes infection. The biggest problem with FGM is that due to the age of the girls receiving the procedure, they may not actually consent to it and are forced into it. Additionally, there are not any health benefits for this procedure but they can cause problems for the recipient.

This course aims to equip you with the tools to know what to look for if you suspect a child is going to be subjected to FGM and what you can do to prevent it
