Dignity and Safeguarding in Adult Health and Social Care

NCFE Level 2 Certificate Understanding Dignity and Safeguarding in Adult Health & Social Care

Course Description

All local authorities are required, by law, to record and monitor ‘safeguarding concerns’ in their area. Of those reported , over 60 per cent of the individuals at risk were aged 65 or over, and the most common type of abuse was neglect or acts of omission, followed by physical abuse. Sadly, abuse was a causal factor in the deaths of 60 people for the year 2015.

This qualification explores two principles that everyone who works within health and social care should strive to uphold. The first principle is promoting and respecting an individual’s dignity. The second principle is safeguarding an individual’s right to live free from abuse, neglect and harm. The two principles are unfortunately interlinked together.
