This guide sets out the most current principles behind working in adult safeguarding, presents core skills and knowledge to support best practice and shows how to overcome areas that present challenges to practitioners. Two core themes are ensuring adult safeguarding is person-centred and outcome-focused. Chapters cover issues such as self-neglect and hoarding, domestic abuse, modern slavery and human trafficking and financial scams. Each chapter includes case studies to illustrate good practice, checklists, and key messages for specific areas of practice. The appendix provides an overview of core legal frameworks for safeguarding adults practice. (Edited publisher abstract)
