Factitious disorder imposed on another: Literature scan (2021)
Purpose The purpose of this literature scan is to provide up-to-date information on what is known about children and young people affected by Factitious Disorder Imposed on Another (FDIA; previously known as Munchausen syndrome by proxy). It is hoped that this literature scan will contribute to kaimahi being able to articulate the importance of safety-organised assessment and planning when working with affected families or whānau. This is particularly important in assessing the ability of affected families and whānau to achieve safety into the future, as agencies and others step back. As such, this literature scan has multiple intended uses: • to be shared with kaimahi as required • to inform professional practice responses to requests for assistance when Oranga Tamariki has kaimahi working with families or whānau where FDIA may be present • to know more about this area to inform future policy and practice work. The intended audience for this work is social work practitioners working in care and protection, specifically kaimahi across Oranga Tamariki. The focus is on what is needed for the safety of children and young people experiencing FDIA.
