Incident Reporting and Investigation

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:

  • 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
