Referrer Training dates 2017

Nottinghamshire Safeguarding Adults Board has set up a programme of Referrer Training dates, aimed at those nominated referrers responsible for making safeguarding adults referrals in your organisation.

The learning objectives for these events are to:

  • Explore your responsibilities as a referrer when a concern is raised with you or you have become aware that abuse or neglect of an adult at risk has occurred, or is suspected
  • Explore potential decisions which may result from the work you undertake as nominated referrer
  • Understand consent, information sharing, capacity and person centred approaches in relation to adult safeguarding referrals
  • Demonstrate the responsibilities and key components in making an effective adult safeguarding referral.

Certificates of attendance will be provided after the event.
