SUDIC Multi-Agency Training

Overview

The training is aimed at all professionals involved in attending SUDIC’s and brings together Police Officers (DI/DS), medical professionals including Paediatricians, A&E, Nurses, and Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS).

This joint training aims to allow for removing barriers and myths, and increase understanding when dealing with these tragic, difficult cases.  There may be an opportunity to open further for those attending child deaths in an investigative capacity. 

This event builds on the SUDIC course and allows for open discussions between professionals regarding processes and procedures for Sudden Unexpected Death in Childhood. SUDIC scenarios will be discussed through case studies including overlay, RTC, medical and murder.
