About this product
- DescriptionAll nurses, whatever setting they work in, are likely to encounter people who are at risk of abuse and neglect. Recent reports have highlighted poor care and abuse and safeguarding adults is therefore a key requirement in pre-registration programmes. This book seeks to raise nurses' awareness of vulnerability, abuse and neglect whilst providing them with the kwledge and skills required to safeguard those within their care. It encourages them to make links between theory and practice, to think critically in order to achieve the necessary balance between protection and empowerment and to examine how their personal practice may be improved.
- Author BiographyDr Robert Jenkins has recently retired as a principal lecturer, academic manager and member of the Unit for the Development in Intellectual Disabilities. He taught across a number of undergraduate and postgraduate courses, and was vulnerable person's module manager for the MSc Professional Practice (Vulnerable Persons) and is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. He has undertaken a number of research studies regarding people with learning disabilities, particularly safeguarding and has published widely in this area. He is a registered learning disability nurse by background and proud grandfather of a young man with autism who continues to challenge his established views about this condition.
