NICE Guideline NG216 - Social work with adults experiencing complex needs

Professional curiosity is to explore and understand what is happening with an individual or family; enquiring deeper and using skilled, proactive questioning and investigation. It is about comparing what the person is saying with what is observed and any other available information, questioning any incongruity, rather than making assumptions or taking things at face value, to provide appropriate and tailored support.
