1.1.1. The Child Protection Companion originated from a practitioner’s clinical manual produced in Leeds. The 2006 Companion was produced by the Child Protection Special Interest Group (CPSIG) and was based on evidence, research and practice at the time. The second edition produced in 2013 by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) built upon the original version, brought it up to date, and expanded the scope of the document. The current edition could not have been produced without these predecessors and our thanks are given to all those involved in previous editions. The RCPCH has decided that all future editions of the Child Protection Companion will be electronic in format allowing for timely revision of content as necessary. For more information on the methodology for the recent updates, please see About this Document.
