Learning the lessons from the London Safeguarding Adult Reviews (SARs)
This session will be delivered by Dr Adi Cooper OBE, Care & Health Improvement Advisor, Local Government Association.
Safeguarding Adult Reviews (SARs) are case reviews undertaken by Safeguarding Adults Boards. These are usually completed when someone dies as a result of suspected or actual abuse or neglect, multi-agency working could be improved and there are lessons to be learnt that could benefit practice and prevent similar situations happening again. An analysis of SARs, undertaken in London since the Care Act 2014 was implemented, found common themes and patterns (Braye & Preston-Shoot, 2017).
This session will explore the lessons for all practitioners arising from these tragic events.
This half-day session aims to:
Present the findings from the London SARs
Explore the implications for social work practice
Consider how social workers can champion practice improvement
