Making Risk Management Work in Health & Social Care

The ½ -day Making Risk Management Work in Health & Social Care programme is founded on ISO31000:2018 risk management processes and includes several interactive sessions that enable participants to better understand the subject matter to develop and enhance skills that will be used in regular risk assessment and management practice.


The programme has been designed to cover:


  • An introductory session to risk management, the ISO31000 Risk Management Model and the organisational risk appetite

  • Strategies to engage relevant expertise and inform key stakeholders at the commencement of the risk management process and the importance of promoting risk ownership among teams

  • How to consider the scope and content of risk

  • The risk assessment process considering the identification of specific risks, how these are analysed and evaluated.  Consideration is also given to identification of the sources of these risks, potential consequences of the risk, and how risks are controlled.

  • Identifying options for risk treatment to mitigate or eliminate potential risk occurrences.   Consideration is given to the creation of risk treatment plans and how options/actions will be implemented.

  • How to effectively record and communicate information on risk management activities and associated outcomes across the organisation.  Consideration is also given to using risk reporting information for decision making on services.

  • How to roll out the risk management approach in your area of responsibility.


All programme content is evidence-based and has been designed by healthcare experts and combines evidence-based best practice with thought-provoking practical exercises.  All materials are available post-programme via the Programme Resource Website. 


The Programme is aimed at all staff who are conducting or overseeing risk assessment or risk management and focuses on building and developing skills and knowledge. Up to 25 participants can be accommodated at the ½ day programme.
