The 'What If...' series is nine cards that have been developed to provide hints, tips and signposting for all those working within adult social care to use in relation to adults at risk of harm.

The topics covered are:

• Domestic Violence (inclusive of FGM, Forced Marriage and Honour-Based Violence )
• Financial Abuse
• Incidents Between Residents
• Medication Errors
• Modern Slavery
• Moving and Handling Concerns
• Nutrition and Hydration Concerns
• Pressure Sore Concerns
• Self Neglect

The 'What If...' series will replace the Local Harm Table as we move more in line with the ADASS approach to safeguarding adults and modern practice.

The 'What If...' resources can be used across all settings and should be shared, so that frontline staff can familiarise themselves with the cards and use them in their everyday practice.

They are available to download from the Policies and Guidance page, and also within each abuse type accordion within the Types of Abuse page.
