Safeguarding adults is a rapidly evolving area of professional practice and this timely new text book provides an authoritative guide that critically engages with the recent developments and encapsulates some of the emerging approaches to contemporary adult safeguarding practice. Written by a collection of authors with a wealth of academic and practice experience, and with a strong focus on multi-disciplinary working, the text covers key  topics such as:

  • Safeguarding adults who lack capacity, or whose level of capacity is unknown or unclear
  • Common issues and tensions surrounding the various UK laws and policies that seek to safeguard adults with mental health problems
  • Safeguarding older adults, with a unique and insightful focus on the perspective of carers
  • Current limitations in practice, including the blurred nature of the boundaries between informal and legally mandated care, relating to the safeguarding of people with learning disabilities.

Illustrated throughout by engaging case studies to help readers apply what they have learnt to everyday practice, this comprehensive guide to safeguarding adults is essential reading for students across a broad range of health and social care disciplines, as well as practitioners looking for an up-to-date source of reference.
