Seminar Title: The thin blue line: professional integrity and unsafe practice

This topic can be highly emotive and fraught with complications. The session will consider the difficulties professionals face when they observe bad practice, and questions are set to run very deep.

What is poor practice? How do professionals confront such a complex subject? Should we always raise a safeguarding when we see something we are unhappy about? Has balanced decision-making made a difference? How do we maintain integrity and facilitate positive handling experiences for everyone involved?
