• Please refer to the Assessment Instructions for details on how to complete this assessment.

This assessment provides an opportunity for you to use the theoretical knowledge you have acquired so far in CCA206 Care of Children and Adolescents. You are encouraged to analyse the information presented to you in the case study, recommend appropriate courses of action based on best practices, supported by academic references. Consider the principles of atraumatic care and family-centred care in your analysis and care planning.

8. Appraise suitable risk assessment tools, and apply one tool to determine the risk management measures to be integrated into the child’s care plan.
