The Department of Health recently announced on March 11 2016 the new Safeguarding Statutory Guidance "Safeguarding means protecting an adult"s right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect. It is about people and organisations working together to prevent and stop both the risks and experience of abuse or neglect, while at the same time making sure that the adult"s wellbeing is promoted including, where appropriate, having regard to their views, wishes, feelings and beliefs in deciding on any action. This must recognise that adults sometimes have complex interpersonal relationships and may be ambivalent, unclear or unrealistic about their personal circumstances.” Care and support statutory guidance, Department of Health, 11th March 2016

This conference focuses on safeguarding vulnerable adults – improving safeguarding practice, decision making and delivering a person centred outcome focused approach.  Sessions will focus on meeting the new statutory safeguarding guidance in March 2016 including national updates since the Care Act 2014 implementation, moving forward with making safeguarding personal, a legal session which will look at legal developments in safeguarding and decision making in safeguarding. The conference will continue with practical case studies on critical issues such as criteria for intervention, escalating concerns and complaints, undertaking a safeguarding enquiry under section 42, information sharing and working in partnership with the police on serious concerns and criminal offences and undertaking a safeguarding adults review. The theme through the conference will be focused on delivering an outcome focused approach and developing your skills in informed decision making to improve adult safeguarding practice.
