This is a proposal for a new book on adult safeguarding by the PQ team at Bournemouth. It is the result of a huge project that Keith Brown has been commissioned to undertake, and has been written specifically for the work and training that he’ll be delivering next year.  While adult safeguarding is an important CPD course at PQ level, this book aims to provide a guide to adult safeguarding in the context of vulnerable adults at risk of financial abuse, honing in on the issue of mental capacity and how this impacts on personal vulnerability. With this specific focus in mind, I’d see this being used as supplementary reading only on adult safeguarding, BIA and AMHP courses outside of Bournemouth. We have one review in which confirms this, and I have another 2 reviews due in soon.  However, I’m circulating this now as Keith needs to know if we’re happy to go head as he needs the book ready for the launch of his work and training in June next year. We’d need to transmit in early February 2017 and publish in May 2017 to achieve this.

Society is changing rapidly in ways which create exciting ...
