NSPCC Learning Blog - Non-accidental head injury

Last updated by on Wednesday, October 4, 2023


NSPCC Learning has published a new blog on the use of the term ‘non accidental head injury’ (NAHI) in place of ‘shaken baby syndrome’ as part of their Why Language Matters series.


Discussions include: where the phrase ‘shaken baby syndrome’ came from; why the phrase ‘shaken baby syndrome’ should be replaced by NAHI; and working with parents to prevent NAHI.
