Professional Curiosity

Professional curiosity has been an emerging theme, increasingly identified in learning from adult serious case reviews (SCRs) and safeguarding adult reviews (SARs) (Braye et al., 2017; Preston-Shoot, 2017).

Locally this has also been the case, with the following SARs identifying learning that there was a need for greater professional curiosity

Think the Unthinkable

The SAR on Mary, a 20 year old young lady, who needed 24 hour assistance for her complex needs and was found to be pregnant at 30 weeks,   also called for the need for more professional challenge and the need for practitioners to ‘think the unthinkable’ .
