Level 2 Safeguarding Children & Adults at Risk


Level 2 Safeguarding Children and Adults at Risk

Safeguarding is the responsibility of every member of the dental team. Each person has a part to play in recognising and responding to the signs of harm and abuse in patients.

The CQC’s role is to monitor, inspect and regulate services to make sure they meet the fundamental standards of quality and safety. Their role is to check that dental practices provide care that is safe, meaning that patients are protected from abuse and avoidable harm. A key part of this is ensuring that practices have effective systems and processes in place to recognise potential or actual abuse, that they know how to respond and refer appropriately, and they know what they should record in order to help keep children and adults at risk safe. CQC inspectors routinely ask about practices’ safeguarding measures at all inspections.

The aims of this course are:

To enable you to develop further awareness and understanding of the processes related to safeguarding children and adults at risk and relate these to your role and responsibilities within your practice.

To develop further how you will work together as a team.

To help ensure that you comply with the CQC ‘s fundamental standards in Regulation 13 (safeguarding) and Regulation 11 (need for consent) of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014 and the GDC requirements in relation to safeguarding and child protection.

The course provides 3 hours of verifiable CPD.
