Assessment and Management of Risk in Adults and Older People

Price: £95.00
Assessment and Management of Risk in Adults and Older People is a training resource for managers and practitioners in health, housing and social services.
Author(s): Mike Titterton and Helen Smart

Assessment and Management of Risk in Adults and Older People will help trainers working with care professionals to effectively deal with risk decisions concerning the safeguarding and welfare of adults and older people, guiding them through the risk assessment and management process.

The most pressing concern a professional faces when working with individuals judged to be vulnerable in some way is that of making decisions concerning risk. Professionals are increasingly called upon to justify and account for the judgements that they make concerning the safeguarding and welfare of adults and older people.

The theory behind the training contests the negative understandings of risk found in professional practice, policy and research, and proposes positive concepts that embrace risk enablement. It seeks to promote principles based on the rights of people at risk of harm to make choices about risk and risk taking.

This essential training resource is a step-by-step guide to delivering a risk assessment and management programme for adults and older people. 

Assessment and Management of Risk in Adults and Older People comprises four modules, each based on a specific stage of the risk assessment and management process. The modules are broken down into easily manageable training sessions which include case studies, exercises and handouts to support the presentation material and training notes.


The packs contains:

CD-Rom containing trainer’s notes, handouts, ringbinder with colour laminated dividers

Trainers of welfare practitioners, managers and practitioners working in the statutory and independent sectors of welfare. It can also be used in conjunction with service users and informal carers, as participants of the training course.
