Risk, it’s a challenging word and subject to discuss and manage within Health and Social Care environments.
This half day course by Iain Bolton, Registered Nurse and Specialist Moving & Handling Advisor aims to explore the professional attitudes towards risk in relationship to patients and service users and how we as professionals look at risk as a positive development in promoting independence of those in receipt of care and those providing it.
The course will explore the legislation surrounding risk management and what is meant by the term ‘managing risk’ and how this presently impacts upon decision making, whilst also discussing the practical impact of managing risk and how positive risk taking can be both appropriate and beneficial in relation to the management and provision of care.
Our course is aimed to those working within the Health & Social Care sectors, including Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Nurses, Support Workers, Carers and Care Managers.
