RISK MANAGEMENT WORKSHOPS

Our workshops are focused on providing advice and practical tools and tips to help you deliver improved patient care

Announcement

Having closely followed the evolving coronavirus situation; and taking into consideration official advice and local needs, we have decided to postpone all our face to face events until further notice. We have taken this unprecedented decision because the health and safety of our members and colleagues is paramount.

We will continue monitoring the situation over the coming weeks and decide if there is a need to postpone any future events. We hope to be able to re-schedule the postponed events later in the year if possible. In the interim, you can still access online Risk Prevention programmes through our PRISM platform and we will be scheduling regular webinars.

Tackle the challenges of your daily practice with our professional development workshops.

The Mastering workshops series provides you with skills to combat the common causes of complaints and claims, developed through our 125 years' experience of supporting members.
Our specially trained facilitators are all experienced clinicians who understand the complexities of your practice. There is a range of half-day workshops to choose from, all with 3 hours CPD and free as a benefit of membership. 

Learning From Events

With more than 300 million patients consulting with primary care teams annually it’s unfortunately inevitable that a proportion will suffer some form of unintentional harm, mostly of low to moderate severity. Research has suggested that around 1-2% of consultations in primary care are associated with an adverse event. The cost of harm – to patients, to those working in healthcare, and to productivity – is significant.

Creating a positive safety culture can be achieved by avoiding complacency and encouraging vigilance towards patient safety. Such a culture means that people feel comfortable discussing errors, and leaders and frontline staff take shared responsibility for delivering safer care. This in-house workshop explores important issues and skills in relation to learning from patient safety incidents and will provide guidance on how to hold a significant event meeting.

Suitable for 
The whole practice team – General Practitioners, Nurse Prescribers, Practice Nurses and Administration Staff.

Format
Three-hour workshop delivered at your premises comprising of short lectures, reflective exercises, small group facilitated discussions, group activities and rehearsal of skills.
