7 Minute Briefings

Seven minute briefings are based on a technique borrowed from the FBI.  The approach is based on research which suggests that seven minutes is an ideal time span to concentrate and learn.  Learning for seven minutes is manageable in most services, and learning is more memorable as it is simple and not clouded by other issues and pressures.

Lancashire Safeguarding Children Board adtoped the 7 Minute Briefing as a method of training and to date has been found a useful and effective way of learning and sharing information across a range of services.

7 Minute Briefings produced by Lancashire Safeguarding Adults Board are accessible here.

Prevent Training Toolkit

NHS England have developed a toolkit of Prevent training products that organisations can use to raise the awareness of Prevent with their staff. NHS England and Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare have given Lancashire Safeguarding Adult Board (LSAB) permission to share this training with multi agency partners.
