ABOUT THIS EVENT

Avoiding risks altogether can limit life opportunities, and impact negatively on quality of life. Risk is a concept that tends to have negative connotations, but people take considered risks all the time and gain many positive benefits. People want choice and control for themselves and safety for those they care for which can cause tension, and impact negatively on human rights. Balance and proportionality are vital considerations in encouraging responsible decision making and in protecting human rights. However, services face many challenges including different perceptions of risk, between practitioners, service users and families. This can be difficult for social care practitioners and confusing for individuals and families.


Services have a duty of care and should aim to identify risks in a pro-active manner, but this cannot be allowed to prevent individuals from having choice and control. This course aims to cultivate practice that enables positive risk-taking, as opposed to working within a risk averse culture. The course provides a learning platform to create services that promote independence and avoid creating a blame culture where staff are too worried about the potential consequences to promote positive risk taking.
