About the Event
Social work research seminar – ‘Learning from research for contemporary social work practice’ - The Impact of Covid-19 on Safeguarding Adults
Would you like to enhance your social work knowledge base and evidence-based practice experience?
Do you want to learn more about research taking place in the region and how it can inform your social work practice?
We know that evidence-based practice is crucial to good social work. It helps keep us professionally curious.
However, in the busy world of front line social work , we know that it can be challenging to keep up to date with the latest research, to make sense of it and understand how it applies to the day to day issues that social workers deal with.
The West Midlands Social Work Teaching Partnership is committed to developing links between research and practice in social work. We want to support practitioners to engage with research that can help them with the real-world issues that they work with daily.
We are therefore hosting a series of quarterly Learning from Research Seminars which include a presentation from a researcher who will discuss a piece of research with key findings and messages for contemporary social work practice. Time is also allowed for questions and reflections for learning and moving forwards. These sessions will provide learning for both adults and children’s practitioners, with opportunity to feedback some messages from practice to help inform future research.
Our next seminar will be held on 17th May 2022 11:00a.m. to 12.30pm. This will be led Laura Pritchard-Jones from Keele University, who will present findings of her research into the impact of Covid-19 on Adult Safeguarding. The talk will present key findings from the research project, with emphasis on the extent to which the findings relate to the development of adult safeguarding practice. For example, the extent to which technology can and should be used in adult safeguarding activity, the need for flexibility and creativity in the way technology is used to support adult safeguarding activity, and the need for collaboration and communication within and across agencies.
This session is only available to members of the West Midlands Social Work Teaching Partnership, and people with lived experience who are linked to one of our partner organisations.
