Abstract

This research project was commissioned by the National Independent Safeguarding Board (via Welsh Government) to push forward the intellectual agenda and learning relevant to policy and practice that can be achieved from a systematic analysis of death/serious harm reviews. As recognised in the specification for this research, there is a lack of ’reading across’ different types of reviews to uncover learning that can be considered fundamentally relevant to safeguarding practice (whether it is in the context of domestic abuse, vulnerable adults and/or mental health). As this is the first study to provide a thematic analysis across more than one type of review, the results provide a preliminary foundation to inform future research and practice in this area. The similarity of the key themes identified across reviews, corroborated by the discussions in the focus groups, provides evidence to suggest that having separate reviewing processes may not be the most efficient and productive way to promote multi-agency and multi-local authority, pan Wales learning from these tragic events.
