Learning Lessons From Safeguarding Adults Reviews – New for This Year !
To enable practitioners and managers in any organisation to learn together in a supportive, non blaming environment about the key themes emerging from Safeguarding Adults Reviews. Delegates will also reflect on what the learning means for their practice with service users and their communication and joint working with staff from partner agencies
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.
The training is commissioned jointly by Norfolk County Council and many of the sessions are open to employees of health and social care organisations throughout the county of Norfolk as well as to employees of Norfolk County Council.
Norfolk Adult Social Services pays for all Social Care Workers in Norfolk to have free access to the Care Information & Learning Services website
St Thomas Training have a number of really useful open courses and a very reasonable cost but haven’t been commissioned by NCC . Never the less they look very good and the cost to organisations are reasonable.
These courses are aim to assist health & social care professionals to apply important elements of Safeguarding Adults and the Mental Capacity Act into good practice. The course are:
A one-day session to enable practitioners, in a supportive, non blaming environment, to understand the key themes emerging from Safeguarding Adults Reviews (in Wales these are called “Safeguarding Adults Practice Reviews”). Participants will also reflect on what the learning means for their practice with service users and their communication and joint working with staff of partner agencies. This session will look at a selection of Reviews from across England and Wales, as well as some Reviews which are more local to the venue in which the training is taking place.
A one-day training session to give participants an overall understanding of how the Mental Capacity Act 2005 applies to issues of sexual activities. For example when a service user who has a learning disability, or dementia, wants to have a sexual relationship. Or perhaps when one half of a couple wants to continue a sexual relationship even though his/her spouse may no longer have the capacity to consent to that relationship.
A one-day session to enable managers in the voluntary, private and independent sector to fulfil their safeguarding responsibilities effectively, and to work with their partners in the statutory sector to achieve, wherever possible, the outcomes service users wish to achieve for themselves.
Mental Capacity Act cases go to the Court of Protection either where there is conflict amongst the people involved, and/or where the issue is so serious or complicated that it cannot be resolved through meetings and negotiation. The rulings of the Court, and the reasons for those rulings, can be invaluable in helping health & social care practitioners deal with similar issues in their own practice. So this one-day session will look at a range of cases which have been considered by the Court of Protection, to see what lessons can be learnt for our everyday practice.
This workshop is to raise awareness of Prevent (WRAP). The workshop will enable you to recognise when a person or child may be being targeted and groomed for radicalisation by people who support extremist ideologies and to know how to refer them for supportive intervention. Prevent is an important element of our safeguarding responsibilities. The workshop is delivered by a Home Office approved trainer.
There is a range of training available on suicide prevention. Details can be accessed via the Norfolk County Council Suicide Prevention pages on the Norfolk County Council website.
The training section can be found on the ‘Information for Professionals’ page.
