  • highlight situations in which you are best placed to observe signs of abuse, neglect and CSE and the legal issues to consider when making a referral
  • identify sources of useful information and contacts for the development of local procedures for dealing with suspected abuse, neglect or CSE observed in the pharmacy setting
