Do you know how to write an incident report? Are you confident in your investigation skills? This course will teach you to successfully report, respond, investigate and prevent incidents to improve outcomes for staff, services, and the people you support.

This three hour workshop via Zoom will help you to:

  • Know recommended content of incident reports
  • Learn how to ensure documentation is accurate, defensible and reasonable care is evidenced and to demonstrate effective risk management
  • Be aware of best practice in Incident Investigation to prevent recurrence, enable open disclosure and meet Quality Standards
  • Practice Case studies to improve your skills

This workshop is in partnership with Preventing Harm Initiative (PHI) and is facilitated by Donny Raets. Donny's expertise is in creating manageable ways to identify, report, investigate and most importantly, how to prevent or reduce the likelihood of recurrence.
