Interagency safeguarding adults training for protection and prevention

Domac, Sezer and Haider, Sharif (2013). Interagency safeguarding adults training for protection and prevention. Journal of interprofessional care, 27(6) pp. 520–522.



There is a significant gap in interprofessional education (IPE) in relation to safeguarding adults. Trainee health and social care professionals do not have the confidence and competency to safeguard adult patients/service users. Furthermore, IPE in safeguarding has wider ramifications regarding community safety and crime and disorder partnerships, both of which operate at a local level within communities. The IPE safeguarding training pathway is therefore based on the outcome of the interviews with safeguarding practitioners in an English local authority, enabling practitioners in both health and social care to become capable, confident and competent when safeguarding vulnerable adults.
