Published by Naomi Wood for Capita Conferences in Health

A One Day National Conference

The forthcoming implementation of the Care Act means an overhaul in the way that support for vulnerable people will be delivered. Capita Conferences’ Safeguarding Adults Conference will provide guidance on the new structural framework for protecting adults and the implications for safeguarding responsibilities across agencies.

The event will offer practical ideas on effective multi-agency approaches and demonstrate important case studies from housing, police, health and social care organisations to ensure a high quality of care is supplied. Key issues to be covered at this conference include:

  • Understanding the implications of the Care Act on adult safeguarding
  • The future of the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards in protecting vulnerable people
  • Assessing safeguarding inspection procedures to improve the quality of care
  • Innovative ideas around multi-agency working and information sharing
  • Learning how to identify self-neglect cases and support individuals with mental health problems

With the imminent implementation of the Care Act in 2015, attend this timely conference to understand how to apply the necessary changes to ensure vulnerable people within society are cared for effectively.
