All local authorities are required, by law, to record and monitor ‘safeguarding concerns’ in their area. For the 2015–16 reporting year there were 186,860 reported concerns in England alone. Of these, 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 in this period. This qualification explores two key principles that everyone who works within health and social care should strive to uphold. The first principle is that of promoting and respecting an individual’s dignity. The second principle is that of safeguarding an individual’s right to live free from harm and abuse. These two fundamental principles are interlinked. Candidates will also explore issues relating to duty of care within the context of adult health and social care, and gain an understanding of possible conflicts and dilemmas faced between duty of care and individuals’ rights.
