|Title:||Speaking Up About Adult Harm: Options for Policy and Practice in the Irish Context||Authors:||Donnelly, Sarah; O'Brien, Marita||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/9369||Date:||Mar-2018||Online since:||2018-05-09T11:55:01Z||Abstract:||Current mechanisms for responding to the prevention and the protection of adults at risk of abuse in Ireland can be described as ad hoc and reactionary. For example, media reports exposing cases of abuse and neglect, such as Leas Cross and Áras Attracta, have resulted in the introduction of new safeguarding policies and inspection regulations. Whilst the current measures in place to identify and prevent harm and potential harm to adults at risk offer some protection, it is evident that deeply embedded resistance to cultural change within institutions and organisations demand that safeguarding procedures need to be placed on a statutory basis to ensure the safeguarding process is applied in a consistent and effective way.||Funding Details:||Senator Colette Kelleher, Houses of the Oireachtas||Type of material:||Technical Report||Publisher:||University College Dublin||Keywords:||Adult safeguarding; Reporting systems; Adult Safeguarding Bill 2017||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
