C728 Safeguarding of Vulnerable Adults (Level 2)

NOT SUITABLE FOR DENTALSTAFF, PLEASE SEE OUR SPECIFIC DENTAL COURSE

Healthcare organisations have a significant responsibility to be active and responsive in ensuring the maintenance of their patients' dignity and meeting statutory duties to safeguard adults. This requires a systematic approach, effective leadership at all levels and an organisational culture where care and compassion are valued.

Proposed Refresher Training Periods

It is recommended that Safeguarding refresher training for all staff should take place on induction to ensure awareness of local procedures and every 3 years going forwards (2 years for online learning).

Organisational Implications: Each healthcare organisation will need to determine the required refresher training periods, ensuring that any agreed training schedule is incorporated into their local policy.

Refresher training will be indicated for all staff if there is a change in Safeguarding legislation nationally or an organisation has amended its policy locally.

 

Duration:     3 Hours
