This course aims:
Safeguarding Adults Reviews are conducted when a service user has died or experienced serious harm and there are concerns about how agencies have worked together to safeguard the person. Often in these cases staff have worked diligently and with great care and concern for the service use but with the benefit of hindsight an SAR can shine a light on how staff may have been caught up in complex inter agency or family dynamics which made it difficult to accurately assess the risks to the service user or hear the service users voice.
The course will consider our Norfolk SARs and learning emerging nationally throughout the year. Click here for dates and times and to book a place
