Key changes in legislation regarding vulnerable adults, including the introduction of the Care Act 2014, have made this e-learning course essential training for those working as adult carers. Recognition of abuse and its causes are covered in depth, as are the legislation and issues of risk management. Real-life case studies bring the theory into sharp focus.
The course provides a highly effective way to raise awareness and equip workers with the underpinning knowledge and key skills to identify abuse and take appropriate action. It is aimed at anyone who works with adults or is in the position of providing training in the safeguarding of adults at risk.
This course can be used in addition to conventional training and is a useful alternative for those who prefer to work at their own pace and at a time and place of their choosing. This course is popular with our professional carers and is also useful for informal carers and family members.
