A team of nursing researchers are seeking midwives and registered nurses working with children to participate in an online survey about how they keep children safe from abuse and neglect

Nurses and midwives are crucial to preventing and responding to child abuse (safeguarding), yet little is known about the nature and scope of their safeguarding practices. This research aims to provide initial insight into the diverse safeguarding roles of registered nurses and midwives in Australia to inform future education, professional development and support for their important work. Midwives (all practice models) and registered nurses (working with children) in all roles including clinical, education, research and management are eligible to participate.

Participants would be asked to complete a series of up to four online surveys (15 minutes each). The first survey is available immediately, and the remaining surveys will become available after preliminary analysis. The multiple survey rounds aims to develop consensus about nurses’ and midwives’ roles in keeping children safe.

The Flinders University Social and Behavioural Research Ethics Committee has approved this research (no. 2939).
