Afterhours Core 4.1 Caring for Children: Car Seats, Worker Safety and ICWA (eLearning)
This module will support staff in caring for and keeping children safe when children must be transported by or cared for by afterhours staff. Participants will review basic considerations for caring for children, including children who have challenging behaviors or exceptional care needs. This discussion includes policy and practice around youth who run away or have returned from being on the run. Participants will identify and discuss general worker safety considerations, both in the field and while supervising youth in our care, and options that support everyone’s safety. An overview of professional writing for case notes is provided, including a handout on coding case notes and content on avoiding bias in our writing. Specific requirements related to interacting with the caregivers of infants are reviewed, including policy related to safe sleep, period of purple crying, and the plan of safe care. An introduction to car seats, including recommendations and mandates for their use and overall installation process is provided to further support staff in keeping children safe.
