This course will introduce the key concepts and processes of risk management in a community care context. The course will focus on equipping participants with the knowledge and skills to implement systems and processes in their organisation that meet the requirements of the Community Care Common Standards - Standard One (1.6 Risk Management).
This course follows on from Continuous Improvement: An Introduction. Time will be set aside at the start of this course to discuss issues service providers may have in the implementation of Continuous Improvement systems and processes.
This course is aimed at managers and coordinators and would also be of value to other staff involved in supporting and maintaining risk management processes. Organisation's board members would also benefit from this course.
There are no specific prerequisites, however, participants are recommended to attend Continuous Improvement: An Introduction, before registering for this course, as the systems and processes in both areas can be linked.

Style of Delivery
This course is based on a lecture/discussion approach, with participants encouraged to raise issues and ask questions throughout the session. Significant use is made of a video to clearly explain the need for systems and processes related to risk management. There are community care-based practical exercises to reinforce the key principles of risk management and to equip people with a hands-on understanding of systems and processes.
