Fabricated or induced illness (FII) is a form of child abuse in which the parent or carer deliberately fakes, manipulates or causes symptoms of illness in the child. As safeguarding and child protection are core to their role, health visitors may be among the first professionals to spot signs of FII and can play an important part in enabling effective communication between professional bodies in cases of suspected FII in babies and children. This once rare phenomenon is becoming increasingly apparent in the community setting and presents unique challenges within the safeguarding arena.
