Safeguarding, safety and risk: A scoping review.

Yvonne, Birks, Fiona, Aspinal,

This review, carried out in the UK, aims to redress a gap in the literature by exploring, through a scoping review of evidence, policy and guidance documents, the extent to which definitions, discussions and practice of safety and safeguarding across different care sectors are shared or may vary. The findings suggest that health and social care may use and understand the terms safety and safeguarding differently. Despite the volume of health and social care literature that discusses safety, safeguarding and risk separately, there was little work that explicitly acknowledged the lack of congruence about how they were understood in different service contexts or that attempted to explore them in the context of integrated care.
