The Hampshire Safeguarding Children Board are pleased to announce the launch of ICON which is a multi agency response to Abusive Head Trauma in infants.
ICON stands for;
I Infant crying is normal
C Comfort methods can sometimes soothe the baby
O It’s OK to walk away if you have checked the baby is safe and the crying is getting to you
N Never ever shake or hurt a baby
Following a number of Serious Case Reviews in Hampshire they have collaborated with national experts and parents to develop a programme of intervention aimed at educating parents on how to cope with a crying baby, and handle a baby safely. Launch events are taking place on the 17 September 2018 at the Ashburton Hall, EII, Winchester, SO23 8UG
