Age is but a number and we need to remember whats meaningful to me may not be meaningful to someone else. So occupations should be classed as 'age appropriate' they should be person appropriate

Hugely impacts. Safeguarding is everyone's business and I certainly was not confident leaving uni in safeguarding processes. I think we tend to rely on other professions/senior staff to safeguard if we notice concerns but in reality it's everyone's duty.

Exactly! Sounds like you are fully embracing it! I think sometimes as OTs we see it as other professionals roles.

Yes, as part of the development of a management strategy around safeguarding needs. This then goes external to the designated safeguarding team via social work. I work within a forensic mental health environment just to put this into context.

It's part of life. It's an obligatory part of working life, pretty much no matter what your job.

We're coming to the end of today's ! It's been a really interesting chat tonight; lots to think about regarding how we're taught about safeguarding and how we "do" safeguarding in a way that fits with our roles as OTs

And as for being an academic now also, safeguarding is important because you sometimes have to balance between trying to help the student vs. protecting the student.

The deprivation of liberty safeguarding was used once so far. The occupational therapist and the nurse filled out the paperwork .

We have a very robust system in secure services to identify/record intelligence that could lead to issues around safeguardings, due to increased understanding of factors such as relational security. This helps to reduce/prevent safeguardings I imagine.
