Safeguarding Adults Level 3

The aims of safeguarding are to prevent harm, abuse and neglect and to reduce the risk of abuse to people with care needs. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) safeguarding regulations state that safeguarding is fundamental to high-quality health and social care, and those who work in health and social care settings must undergo suitable training for their role.

The adult safeguarding process involves the adult at risk and their family members working together with professionals and safeguarding agencies. Multi-agency partnerships are also a key aspect of safeguarding vulnerable adults and it’s vitally important that everyone understands their roles and responsibilities at all times.

The Caredemy Safeguarding Adults Level 3 course builds upon the knowledge gained from our Level 1 and Level 2 courses. Studying this course will provide designated safeguarding leads and referrers with the skills and knowledge they need to perform their role successfully. 

This adult safeguarding training course is CQC compliant, qualifies for CPD and meets the outcomes of the Core Clinical Framework. You’ll find the course materials clear and easy to understand, and the course is covered by our 14-day money-back satisfaction guarantee.

Who is Safeguarding Adults Level 3 suitable for?

The online safeguarding training course is useful as part of induction training for new staff and can also be used as refresher training or ongoing CPD for existing staff.

What topics does the Safeguarding Adults Level 3 course cover?

This course is designed to cover the competencies that are required in staff who assess and evaluate concerns around adult safeguarding.

Completing this course will allow you to identify the signs of different types of abuse, document concerns and communicate effectively with adults at risk. You will understand how to undertake risk or harm assessments and contribute to inter-agency assessment, and will also be able to formulate and communicate effective care plans.

The Safeguarding Adults Level 3 course begins by reinforcing the six principles of safeguarding (Care Act 2014), the different forms of abuse and the importance of person-centred care. The course then moves on to supervision and decision making, and their role in creating a high-quality care setting. All of these topics are explored in more detail at this level than in the Safeguarding Adults Level 2 course. 

A positive risk approach can allow for open discussion and works on a more person-centred basis. While many courses focus on risk assessment and management, the Care Act 2014 states that health and social care should work towards developing a culture of positive risk taking and risk establishment. The Caredemy Safeguarding adults Level 3 course highlights positive risk taking as a more balanced approach to risk and considers differing views on risk. 

When risk leads to harm, the decision makers in a care setting must be able to defend their decision and the reasoning behind them. Our course covers the important topics of significant harm and defensible decisions as well as who needs to be notified in the event of harm. It also considers the appropriate mindset required for this vital role.

As a designated safeguarding lead, you will often be required to take part in planning meetings and enquiries, which are covered in depth by the Safeguarding Adults Level 3 course. Reviews are an important part of adult safeguarding and offer a valuable opportunity to learn, so you’ll learn about the different types of review along with the processes involved. You may also be involved in Safeguarding Adults Boards (SABs), which are required under the Care Act 2014 to oversee and coordinate the work of agencies involved in safeguarding within the local area.

Information handling and sharing within health and social care settings is covered by various pieces of legislation, so you’ll learn important guidance such as when confidentiality can be overridden and how to handle requests for information.

You’ll also learn about the process for assessing mental capacity and receive useful guidance on report writing for designated safeguarding leads.
