Changing societal attitudes, and regulatory responses, to risk-taking in adult care

Frank Furedi

This scoping paper explores the relationship between policy initiatives regarding risk-taking in adult care and its claim to reflect user experience.

This scoping paper:

  • explores the relationship between policy initiatives regarding risk-taking in adult care and its claim to reflect user experience;
  • argues that these policy initiatives are driven by the imperative of rationalising risk management; and
  • claims that such policies are not a response to user demand and that more research is needed to evaluate the attitudes of users of adult care to risk-taking.
