Many of you will doubtless be familiar with our Chief Social Worker for Adults Lyn Romeo’s blog where she regularly sets out her beliefs, values and objectives for advancing the quality, value and breadth of adult social work in England.
Today, she publishes a new Safeguarding Adults Protocol for pressure ulcers. Their prevention or mitigation may not immediately spring to mind as a social work issue.
However, for social workers, their close involvement in the lives of families and individuals makes them well placed to identify risk and work with clinical services to avoid their occurrence.
Social Care News is therefore delighted to host this guest blog from Lyn in which she explains why this new protocol is so important – not just for social workers, but for all health and care professionals caring for or treating adults.
