Safeguarding Adults Under the Care Act 2014: Understanding Good Practice
Posted: 07 November 2018
Following the Care Act 2014, this essential guide to adult safeguarding sets out the most current principles behind working in this area, presents core skills and knowledge to support best practice and shows how to overcome areas that present challenges to practitioners.
Practice in safeguarding adults is changing, with a shift in approach to ensure it is person-centred and outcome-focused. The Care Act 2014 introduced new safeguarding duties for local authorities, and this book describes what up-to-date practice should look like, and how to provide the best quality care and support for adults who may be at risk of abuse or neglect.
Chapters cover core areas of practice according to Care Act and adult safeguarding principles, identify the fundamental skills and knowledge practitioners working in this area should be able to utilise and introduce the emerging challenging issues in the workplace. As well as being invaluable to practitioners working directly in this field, this is also ideally suited to be a text for any social work course or programme on adult safeguarding practice.
