Adult Safeguarding Summit 2024: Adult Safeguarding in Health & Social Care Settings, Improving Practice, Decision Making & Outcomes

Thu, 11 Jul 2024

Virtual, Online

Follow the conference on X #AdultSafeguarding

The Annual Adult Safeguarding Summit 2024 will focus on Adult Safeguarding – improving practice, decision making and outcomes in a health and social care setting. Through national developments and practical case studies the conference will provide you with an essential guide to improving adult safeguarding in your service.

“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 & Social Care, March 2024

“There’s a strong link between safeguarding and mental and physical wellbeing. If someone’s wellbeing is suffering, they may consider certain actions that put them at risk. Any actions taken to safeguard an adult must take their whole wellbeing into account and be proportionate to the risk of harm. We should work with people to understand what matters to them and consider their beliefs, views and feelings when offering support.”

Essex Safeguarding Adults Board, 2024
