About this resource:
Nottingham City Safeguarding Adults Board (NCSAB) has produced this briefing on 'professional curiosity' because it was identified as a learning point from local Safeguarding Adult Reviews and Domestic Homicide Reviews (DHR). A local DHR identified that there were times when staff were not always asking questions to obtain more information regarding circumstances / presentations and perhaps were unsure as to what questions they could ask if not directly related to their work with that person. Staff could also be limited on time to be able to ask probing questions that is not directly related to the person’s presentation. This briefing looks at these factors and ways to incorporate professional curiosity into every day practice.
