Safeguarding Adults

Duration

1 day

Course Overview


This one-day course for support staff draws on government guidelines in relation to the issue of adult abuse. The course will provide delegates with the basic knowledge and skills necessary to recognise and respond to actual or suspected adult abuse, defining adult abuse and clarifying what is meant by a vulnerable adult and what it means to have capacity to consent. The course will identify different types of abuse and explore examples of what form it might take and in what circumstances. Delegates will learn to recognise possible signs of abuse and will also learn good practice guidelines for handling abuse disclosures. Delegates will review recording and reporting procedures and will be encouraged to consider how individuals, teams and organisations as a whole can minimize the likelihood of abuse occurring through proper use of workplace structures, joint working and information sharing alongside a sustained commitment to the empowerment of vulnerable adults.
