The ever increasing emphasis on the safety and quality of services and the growing culture of litigation means managing risk is increasingly becoming everyone’s business. This session is designed as an introduction to the key concepts and the actions central to risk management planning.

This introduction is designed to be delivered as a full-day workshop. Although ‘introductory’ events invariably entail a degree of information giving, the approach will wherever possible be interactive, making use of the participant’s own experiences. It will be supported with copies of the presentation and other learning materials for each participant.

The course consists of an interactive workshop day with learning materials.

Please note that we do not run this course at Crow Trees. It is only available as a satellite course.
