Course Detail

PD195 - Safeguarding Adults at Risk - Awareness

This staff training session is designed to enable you to understand what 'Safeguarding' is all about and who might be at risk of harm or abuse.
The session will help you identify the signs and signals that might indicate when an individual is experiencing harm or abuse, and will guide you on what to do about that.

Staff are invited to participate in this course. If you are a student and you believe that you will need Safeguarding training as part of your medical studies, please ask your departmental staff as suitable student provision is usually arranged at this level.


By the end of this course, participants should be able to:

  • learn the definition of an 'adult at risk' in the reference terms of safeguarding
  • recognize signs and symptoms that may indicate harm or abuse
  • make contact with appropriate colleagues in order to investigate concerns
