Are you just starting your home visits or have you been home visiting for a long time and want to review/refresh your practice? Either way, this session will assist you to make your home visits productive and safer.

Using realistic case scenarios and participant experiences we will explore and develop good practice policy, procedures and strategies which ensure care provider's physical and emotional safety when entering and working in service users' home.

  • Good risk assessment practice and tactics to ensure physical safety during home visiting - hazardous substances, manual handling, environment, threat of violence and substance abuse
