New adult safeguarding programme now available

Safeguarding Adults

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked in partnership with NHS England and Improvement to develop a new elearning programme on adult safeguarding.

The Adult Safeguarding in a Secure and Detained Setting programme focuses on adult safeguarding and the roles and responsibilities of those working in these settings across England. It has been developed for a multi-agency audience including prison officers to enable better collaboration between teams and create a culture of safety by embedding safeguarding into everything the prison does.

The learning includes scenarios based in a prison setting, with attention to areas such as elderly care, self-harm and suicide, food refusal, and people with neuro-disability issues. By the end of this session, learners will be able to:

  • define what constitutes safeguarding and at risk within a secure estate setting
  • describe the at-risk factors and how they can impact adults retained within secure estate settings
  • describe the potential impact of risk factors
  • identify the statutory duties that underpin the support of adults at risk

It is envisaged that further case study-based learning within this programme will become available during 2022. Learners are encouraged to provide feedback via the session evaluation if they feel there are particular areas within adult safeguarding in a secure and detained setting, that would be useful to their practice.
