Working with Risk

In this video I reflect on our use of language, and why I frequently prefer to use the phrase ‘Working with Risk’. It’s what we are doing every day! I also offer an important practical tip that is almost always overlooked in our statements of risk assessment.

If the best indicator of future behaviour is past behaviour, can we really learn and make changes to manage risks in our lives? In this video I examine the importance of the context in which a risk occurs.

What is risk assessment?

Arse end surveillance

Risk assessment can frequently become little more than an administrative exercise, if undertaken in the wrong conditions for the wrong reasons. It is a very important means to an end, but not an end in itself. And, as such, it should provide the powerful rationale for important clinical risk decisions. However, we must also clarify when we do a risk screen as opposed to a full risk assessment.

Intuition and Risk Decision-Making

Transforming

Good risk decisions are often informed by a combination of factual and instinctive thinking. Intuition is embedded within a broad clinical reasoning framework, and can be a vitally important tool in our decision-making processes. However, it is to be used with caution, largely as an alarm bell reminding us to seek out more information, or the perspectives of others. In this video I explore the role intuition may have to play for informing the decisions we make.
