The safeguarding adults elearning programme defines the safeguarding knowledge, skills and attitudes required by staff working in health and care settings. The programme covers the safeguarding competencies, levels 1 to 4, and additionally, has material relevant to hospital executives; the programme is split into these four levels.
- Defines the knowledge, skills and attitudes involved in safeguarding vulnerable adults
- Safeguarding is everyone’s business; it starts with you
- Developed by NHS England in partnership with other professional bodies
The online elearning programme consists of four modules that are divided up into smaller elearning sessions.
Level 1 and Level 2
These two levels provide an introduction to the requirements and responsibilities for safeguarding adults. Level 1: All staff working in health and care settings; Level 2: All practitioners that have regular contact with patients, their families or carers, or the public
This level is for registered health and care staff who engage in assessing, planning, intervening and evaluating the needs of adults where there are concerns (as appropriate to their role).
This level includes a learning log, gap analysis tool and a series of webinar resources (for example, fabricated and induced illness, homeless health and self-neglect).”
