Product Description

Review

I found' the explanation of the different professionals involved in adult protection very helpful. Given the breadth of contributors and the content being presented, the book is written in a fairly accessible format... This book is useful for those involved in caring for vulnerable adults. -- Dementia Journal The accessibility of the text, concise overview of legislation and policy, and its application in the real world will not only be interesting to students, but also provide very good examples of reflective writing... The text provides an insight into the work of many others who seemingly have the same goals, but with different ways of achieving them and different regulations governing their methods and understanding of the priorities. -- The British Journal of Forensic Practice This ambitious book brings together a host of perspectives to capture the current state of criminal justice for vulnerable adults while simultaneously offering a reflection on experiences of the past, and the lessons learned from them. -- Professional Social Work It is a well-edited collection of contributions from a wide variety of practitioners and experts who, between them, provide interesting angles in this comprehensive commentary and account of "safeguarding". Amongst the contributors are social workers, lawyers, an advocate, inspector, judge, nurse, and police officer, and, of course, Jacki Pritchard, the editor, who is an eminent authority on the subject. I found the chapter, "how the police investigate crimes against vulnerable adults", fascinating, useful, and full of good sense. -- Caring Times

Format: Paperback
this book is simple to read, well structured and easy to dip in and out of. A good selection of cases to link up with good referencing that allows you to find source material. Overall worth the money and a good introduction into what is definately going to be the next big issue in nursing.
