Target Trainees

This seminar is aimed at qualified staff, practitioners and managers from agencies in Angus (including police, Angus Health and Social Care Partnership, NHS, Angus Council, financial services, the third sector and the independent sector) involved in the operation of adult protection processes.

Participants should have an understanding of their agency’s adult support and protection policies and procedures and should ideally have previously attended or undertaken an introductory course on adult protection.

This seminar is suitable for professionals who would benefit from an understanding of risk assessment, information sharing and data protection in the context of adult protection.

Aims and objectives:

  • To provide a guide to appropriate use of data protection legislation including input from the Information Commissioner’s Office on data protection legislation

PM Assessing Risk (1.15 – 4.15)

  • To consider the circumstances which lead to adults being in need of support and protection
  • To introduce staff to risk assessment methods and how to avoid errors in risk assessment
  • To help staff identify risks and protective factors – for individuals, in families, and within professional systems
  • To enhance participants’ contributions to assessment and decision making
