Fluctuating needs in assessment and eligibility for the Care Act 2014

Part of Care Act 2014

This guide provides an overview of key elements to consider in order to ensure any form of care assessment undertaken - for the adult requiring care and support or their carer with support needs - takes full account of the extent of fluctuating needs. These are needs which may not be apparent at the time of the assessment but have been an issue in the past and are likely to arise again in the future. The guide provides information and practical example on what practitioners need to do to established an accurate picture of fluctuating needs and includes a checklist of core duties for local authorities.

How approaches to qualitative research can support the analysis in Serious Case Reviews: LiPP SCR masterclasses

Part of Safeguarding children

This is one of a series of four Learning into Practice Project Masterclasses produced by the NSPCC and SCIE. The four masterclasses aim to introduce key ideas from the different fields and enable Serious Case Review reviewers to consider their relevance. Specifically focusing on approaches to qualitative research to support serious case reviews, this masterclass introduces the basic theoretical and methodological approaches to producing knowledge in the social sciences and raises awareness of a broad range of debates that constitute these approaches. It explains how to make connections between the methodological and epistemological issues involved in conducting social scientific research and the report authors’ own practice and how to reflect on the social systems that produce particular behaviours. Key topics covered include: the moral and social context of SCRs; how culture affects what we can think and what we say; examples from research on professional practice and organisational systems; and sharing knowledge in complex organisational systems.

Disclosure and parallel proceedings: conducting a robust review: LiPP SCR masterclasses

Part of Safeguarding children

This is one of a series of four Learning into Practice Project Masterclasses produced by the NSPCC and SCIE. The four masterclasses aim to introduce key ideas from the different fields and enable Serious Case Review reviewers to consider their relevance. This masterclass provides an introduction to, and sets out the legal framework for, independent investigation, primacy when another investigation or review is taking place, jointly commissioned reviews, disclosure and information sharing.

The application of systems thinking to Serious Case Reviews and other reviews: LiPP SCR masterclasses

Part of Safeguarding children

This is one of a series of four Learning into Practice Project Masterclasses produced by the NSPCC and SCIE. The four masterclasses aim to introduce key ideas from the different fields and enable Serious Case Review reviewers to consider their relevance. This masterclass provides an introduction to a systems approach to reviews. Specifically, it introduces reviewers to the basic theoretical approaches to understanding the causes of error in high risk fields such as aviation, engineering and health; it highlights some key concepts from these approaches; it encourages participants to make connections between some key concepts from systems thinking and their own practice as SCR lead reviewers; and it gives participants the opportunity to consider what further support they would need in order to be able to apply systemic thinking in their reviews.

Adult safeguarding e-learning course

Part of Safeguarding adults

This e-learning resource aims to promote the safeguarding of adults at risk. The resource explores the following questions: What is 'adult safeguarding’ and how does it affect each and every one of us?; How do I recognise the signs and symptoms of abuse?; What can I do if I suspect that someone is being harmed?; What should I do if I believe someone is being harmed but the person asks me to keep the information confidential and take no action?; What can I do to make it much less likely that a person might be harmed?; How do I ensure that adult safeguarding is managed correctly in the context of the Mental Capacity Act 2005. The resource also includes two 'life stories' to illustrate key adult safeguarding issues, provides links to additional resources, and includes a quiz to help you assess your existing knowledge.
