Question and answer
example of how risk assessment might enable someone to make an enhanced choice
Providing real choice and control for people who use social care means enabling people to take the risks they choose, particularly in the use of self-directed support and personal budgets. With the support of frontline staff, [ people using services should be enabled to define their own risks and to recognise, identify and report abuse, neglect and safeguarding issues. Informed choice is vital. Practitioners may be concerned with balancing risk enablement with their professional duty of care to keep people safe. Practitioners need to be supported by local
authorities/Northern Ireland health and social care trusts to incorporate safeguarding and risk enablement into relationship-based, person-centred working. Good quality, consistent and trusted relationships and good communication are particularly important. Risk enablement can transform care, not just prevent abuse. Risk enablement and safeguarding training for staff, people using services, carers and families is important in achieving this. Risk enablement should become a core part of placing people at the centre of their own care and support. It cannot be a ‘bolt-on’ solution to traditional adult social care systems which are not person-centred. ]
