“A new guideline from NICE covers decision-making in people 16 years and over, who may lack capacity now or in the future. It aims to help health and social care practitioners support people to make their own decisions where they have the capacity to do so and to keep people at the centre of the decision-making process where they do not have capacity.”
This is a snapshot of safeguarding adults practice and challenges based on SCIE’s work in this area and experience of providing training and consultancy support to care and health providers. It is not a comprehensive review of safeguarding practice, but SCIE hope it provokes further thinking about how to improve safeguarding, and the partnerships that need to develop for that to happen.
