Health …

 

Our work is firmly rooted in safeguarding practice with children and adults through training, supervision, and reviews of practice. We work extensively with a wide range of Health organisations to support practitioners in their safeguarding work through:.

  • Delivering training for health practitioners responsible for safeguarding supervision in either children or adult services
  • Direct supervision of Health professionals, either 1:1 or in groups
  • Safeguarding training
  • Reviews of practice

Supervision in Health Settings:

Safeguarding reviews have consistently highlighted the crucial role that health professionals play in identifying and responding to the possible abuse of children or adults.

Yet, delivering effective safeguarding supervision within both hospital and community settings can be challenging. Patients may move through the system swiftly; the primary patient may be another family member and not be the person of concern and they are likely to come into contact with several different members of staff.

The multi-agency network surrounding the patient may also be complex.

The integrated model of supervision:

Our model of supervision aims to help practitioners work with the complexity of the safeguarding challenges and to support reflection and critical thinking.

Our integrated model of supervision provides a framework for delivering supervision which:

  • Involves a professional relationship between the supervisor and staff member based on safety trust and mutual respect which contributes to improving the emotional wellbeing of staff
  • Provides an opportunity to reflect on day to day safeguarding work with patients, and the interplay between feelings, thoughts, decisions and action
  • Is clear about the context within which supervision takes place including organisational expectations and demands
  • Supports staff to think about the wider system including work with other agencies

The framework includes supporting tools to help supervisors work creatively with supervisees throughout the process.

Supervision methods:

We recognise that supervision may be delivered differently depending upon the setting and we are able to offer training focused on the delivery of either 1:1 or group supervision.

We deliver supervision to either individual or groups.
