Risk assessment and decision making is at the heart of professional practice in health and social care.

The need to balance risk, choice and rights with protection and autonomy and the need, not just to minimise danger but to maximise well-being, requires a high level of professionalism and an ability to think critically and analytically. This unit focuses on risk and decision making in practice and is designed to support you in developing your skills in this area.

BU webpage – DO NOT apply here unless instructed to or your application will be rejected. 

You will be provided with the opportunity to gain a critical understanding of a range of relevant theories of risk assessment and decision making. The teaching and reflective activities will encourage you to make links between underpinning theory and practice experience. The sessions will provide an opportunity to share ideas and experiences and will support the development of appropriate skills within a structured learning environment.
