Safeguarding adults

Safeguarding adults


This short course, aimed at health and social care professionals, looks at local and national guidelines for safeguarding adults. Learn about the principles of safeguarding adults, positive care provision, and person-centred care. Know how to follow safeguarding policies and procedures and understand relevant legislation.


Learning outcomes


  • You will learn the importance of knowing, understanding, and following the safeguarding policies and procedures at your setting
  • You will know how to protect people’s health, wellbeing, and human rights
  • You will understand the definitions of abuse and neglect, and will know how to spot the signs and symptoms and be able to react appropriately
  • You will understand the term ‘vulnerable person’


Advantages of this course


  • The principles of safeguarding state that every person has the right to live a life free from abuse, exploitation, and neglect. It is important, therefore, that practitioners in a health and social care setting know how to work in a way that protects people from abuse and neglect.
  • Should abuse or neglect be suspected, a practitioner should feel able to report concerns to relevant agencies. This course outlines the reporting process and who you can turn to for advice and guidance if you are unsure of how to proceed. 
  • Website and video resources are used to explain the information further
  • There is also suggested extended reading that gives both practical information and links to websites to expand knowledge
