Identifying and Applying Early Indicators of Concern in Care Services for People with Learning Disabilities and Older People

Executive Summary

This research project was commissioned by Scottish Government to develop an information-led process to help Adult Support & Protection practitioners to examine and clarify their early concerns about care services. Such a process could enable practitioners to intervene at an earlier stage to prevent deterioration in service quality that is associated with abuse and neglect. The project focused on two service user groups in particular; people with learning disabilities and older people with significant care needs.
