Safeguarding adults has a long history of neglect and scandal, but it is finally starting to gain the recognition it deserves. This book helps students and practitioners to understand this evolving field and to identify ways in which they can develop their own good practice. The first part of the book explores the evolution of concepts and policies for safeguarding adults, with particular reference to the Human Rights Act 1998 and the Capacity Act 2005. In the second section, the focus shifts to good practice in empowering vulnerable adults. The final section focuses on developing effective professional and interprofessional practice.
