Positive risk-taking: from rhetoric to reality

Uploaded: 17th April 2018 | Topic: Guidelines and good practice

Resource was added by: Natalie Swiderska

A discussion paper from Steve Morgan and Nick Andrews for the The Journal of Mental Health Training, Education and Practice.

Purpose – For health and social care services to become truly person-centred requires a fundamentally positive mindset from professionals and care workers, and a willingness to take some risks. The purpose of this paper is to explore how this will apply to delivering dementia services, where almost all of the initial impressions are of deficits, disability and disadvantage.

Purpose – For health and social care services to become truly person-centred requires a fundamentally positive mindset from professionals and care workers, and a willingness to take some risks. The purpose of this paper is to explore how this will apply to delivering dementia services, where almost all of the initial impressions are of deficits, disability and disadvantage.

Design/methodology/approach – The co-authors combine their knowledge and experience of supporting and developing staff working in dementia services. The concept of positive risk-taking is explored within the legislative framework of the Mental Capacity Act 2005, Safeguarding and the Care Act 2014.

Thanks to Paul Rymer for sharing Action's co-production and involvement toolkit. This is for use by members only.
Whilst this toolkit is updated (Action is now part of RNIB) it is still considered to be useful. Natalie Swiderska is working on an updated version of the toolkit for RNIB and will add this to the website when it is published.
