dc.description.abstractThis paper examines decision-making in adult protection based on arrangements operating in a local authority social services department and discussion generated in a specialist training intervention. The paper seeks to identify ways in which approaches to decision-making can be made both more effective and more user centred. The need for good information for efficient and effective decision-making is highlighted, along with the need for user involvement for the production of positive and valued outcomes. The paper looks at how user centred arrangements can be put into practice and discusses the potential for advocacy, outlining possible approaches for adult protection casework. With local authority social services departments struggling to implement No Secrets (2000), with adult protection a key social care competence and with the implementation of PCP and similar approaches a priority (Valuing People, 2001), it is important to improve decision-making in adult protection in ways that are not only time and resource efficient, but place service users and their advocates at the centre of related processes.en_UK
