Course Aims

This course is designed to enable you to increase your understanding of risk assessment and risk management in health and social care.

The course begins by explaining what risk is and outlining the meaning of the term ‘risk assessment’. It then explains how to calculate risk and the importance of recognising different people’s perceptions of risk situations.
In Stage Two, you will learn about the main legislation, policy and guidance relevant to risk assessment and risk management. The course then describes the recommended process of risk assessment, referring to the Health and Safety Executive’s ‘five steps’.
You will then learn how to develop risk management plans, applying the learning to case studies within the module.

In the final stage, the course outlines the process of individual risk assessment, with information on using ‘positive risk assessment’ and a ‘strengths-based approach’. Finally, you will learn the importance of partnership working and sharing information when supporting individuals to manage their own risk.
