1.4 Promoting Dignity, Rights, and Respect in Healthcare

Autonomy and consent are crucial when it comes to safeguarding vulnerable adults. These principles need to be kept in mind by healthcare professionals when dealing with vulnerable adults.

Health workers need to empower vulnerable adults in making their own choices, educate them so they can make informed decisions, and provide support and care to prevent harm or any form of abuse.

Education about possible abuse and maltreatment is also important for the patients and their caregivers because it can help ensure the conduct of healthcare workers is facilitative towards the overall safeguarding process.
