Just published: Adult Safeguarding: Roles and Competencies for Health Care Staff
A new guidance document for health care staff has been published by the Royal College of Nursing on behalf of a wide range of organisations.
One of the most important principles of safeguarding is that it is everyone’s responsibility. Health care staff frequently work with people in their moments of greatest need and can witness health and social inequalities which have a direct impact on the lives of people they care for.
This document has been designed to guide professionals and the teams they work with to identify the competencies they need in order to support individuals to receive personalised and culturally sensitive safeguarding. It sets out minimum training requirements along with education and training principles.
The document has been produced by intercollegiate endeavour and is intended to have relevance to all health care professionals and social care colleagues. It is designed to be used in all organisations that provide or commission health care for adults regardless of sector, setting or size.
