Recognising and responding to abuse can be challenging, particularly as abuse can sometimes be subtle and difficult to recognise. In this module, we will describe the categories of abuse and identify the indicators that might lead you to suspect an adult receiving care is experiencing abuse. All staff working in healthcare settings have a responsibility towards recognising and responding to safeguarding concerns. This module clarifies the role and responsibilities all healthcare practitioners and care staff have when responding to and reporting adult safeguarding concerns.
