The Government recently announced on March 11th 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 in hospitals – improving safeguarding practice, decision making and outcomes. The conference will focus on meeting the new statutory safeguarding guidance which was released in March 2016, including national updates since the Care Act 2014 implementation, moving forward with making safeguarding personal, and an extended legal focus which will look at legal developments in safeguarding and decision making in safeguarding. The theme through the conference will be focused on ensuring frontline staff, and safeguarding adults leads in hospitals deliver an outcome focused approach, and to improve adult safeguarding practice in the hospital setting.
