There are a number of conditions and circumstances that may result in an adult being classed as ‘at-risk’. This might be age, mental health, disability, substance misuse or learning difficulties to name a few. When an adult is no longer fully in control of their personal care, they can become vulnerable to certain types of abuse, so it is imperative that these at-risk adults are appropriately identified and safeguarded by responsible and well-trained care practitioners.
This Safeguarding Adults Level 3 course has been developed by healthcare training specialists, Espirita Learning, and is aimed at those who work with, or who are likely to come into contact with, vulnerable adults. It provides practical instruction on how to identify different types of abuse and abusers, and the actions to be taken should abuse be suspected. This course builds upon Espirita Learning’s Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults Level 2 course and is CPD accredited, equating to 3 CPD points.
