Q: What does your job entail? A: The clinical aspect of my role (50 per cent) is dedicated to the protection of vulnerable adults from abuse and the prevention of significant harm. To this end I have fulfilled a liaison psychiatric nurse function, advising on the positive care management of people with dementia/older people with severe later life mental illness in general hospital settings, and, with Simon Williams who was recently appointed named nurse for vulnerable adult protection, I act as designated lead manager health for the South Wales Protection of Vulnerable Adults (POVA) policy.
