New guidance for physicians to help tackle child sexual exploitation

The RCP has produced new guidance to support physicians to help tackle child sexual exploitation (CSE).

An awareness of CSE is essential for physicians, who could be working with current victims of CSE, young people at risk of CSE, or children and adults who have previously been victims of CSE.

This guidance is designed to support physicians to recognise potential cases of child sexual exploitation (CSE) and seek support to protect vulnerable children and young people. It should be considered essential reading for physicians.
