Is it Abuse or Poor Practice?

Hosted during Safeguarding Adults Week, this course will explore the fine line between abuse and poor practice and will challenge some of the preconceptions around these.

The session will draw upon a series of case studies to encourage attendees to discuss and explore the possible outcomes or actions that need to be taken across a range of situations when aiming for safeguarding best practice. The interactive nature of this training is ideal for practitioners seeking to reflect on and develop their practice.

The course will take place online on Wednesday 17 November, 10am – 1pm.
