Safety Risk Assessment Training
The Center can provide training on use of the Safety Risk Assessment Toolkit, either remotely or in-person. An overview is provided of safety and risk in healthcare design. Each topic (for example, infection control, falls, and medication safety) is also presented as an introductory module for training purposes with associated background reading. After the introduction of each individual risk component, a walkthrough of several examples is provided, after which teams undertake a hypothetical or real-world project. The project is considered with input from the interdisciplinary design team and subject matters experts (in-house to the trainee organization or provided through The Center). This project-based exercise highlights the integration of thinking across different areas of safety in design. Onsite courses are typically provided as two half-day sessions (afternoon and morning).
