These annual awards were established to keep people 'enthused' and thinking about how they can apply training in risk assessment and management in their practice. Application is simple: just 2,000 words, and the preparedness to present your submission here in Leicester if you are shortlisted. The application may be on your own behalf or on behalf of your service and each successful submission will be published on our website.
The benefit of receiving such an award is primarily in satisfaction and status. The tangible benefit is in the form of a certificate, which states your receipt of the award. You will also be able to put the award winner logo and words “Recipient of the APT-DICES® Award for Excellence in Risk Assessment and Management 2019” on your letters / emails, if you wish.
What the award looks for is: (A) a description of an assessment / intervention with a patient or group of patients, (B) the assessment/intervention will feature DICES® largely, although not necessarily being the only action you make with this patient, (C) what you describe should “inspire” other people who read it – they should have ideas they want to implement in their practice too.
The awards will be made annually, and the closing date for submissions is the last day of July. You can make submissions at any time during the year, requesting feedback on your entry if you wish. Results will be announced shortly after the closing date each year. To enter, email your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
Available in 3-day and 2-day versions.
A cogent system that actually facilitates clinical work, this is one of our most renowned courses. Thousands of professionals have already attended it.
With the starting point that excellent risk management involves excellent clinical practice, the DICES® Risk Assessment and Management System shows what is necessary to properly assess and manage risk easily, reliably and to the benefit of all, and this accounts for its staggering popularity.
Part one covers the nature and theory of risk assessment and management: why we do it and what we aim to achieve by it. Part two covers risk assessment specifically: if you don't notice the risk there is no chance you will manage it correctly. Part three covers risk management: there is no virtue in spotting a risk if you are not able to manage it. The end result is that not only do you know about risk assessment and management, you also have the ability and the equipment to do so reliably and well.
