Managing Self Neglect in General Practice
Apr 7th, 2021 by primarycareknowledgeboost
In this episode, we speak to safeguarding nurse lead Sarah Khalil, and adult safeguarding GP lead Dr Rebecca Marchmont about managing self-neglect in adult patients. We discuss the difference between neglect and self neglect, the importance of recognising both, the fundamentals of capacity, where other teams can fit in, and practical tips to help manage these patients. We hope you find the discussion as useful as we did.
