8 The Role and Responsibility of the Trust
Organise for risk management Establish policies and procedures Training and education Gather information Share information Manage incidents, claims and complaints Learn from these Prevent future adverse incidents No changes Explaining what is involved - reassuring that much of this is ongoing. Organising involves ensuring that there is a CO-ORDINATING reasponsibility in each area, and that all the various groups and functions they will hear about actually talk to each other. Establishing policies etc gives the opportunity to talk about examples (waste handling, theatre procedure, contractors procedure, food handling etc etc) Training and education - eg lifting technique ---- risk assessment Information - incident reporting - and near miss reporting These poijnt s should reinforce the initial point of the importanc eof how reporting and RM in general is organised. The last 2 points refer to the panoply of control mechanisms - you can expand on this dependent on time - eg physical controls like security and fire measures, through equipment maintenance and training programmes to training and policies on good communications with patients.

The Trust believe that the systematic identification, analysis and control of risk will be facilitated by effective incident recording, which will be afforded a high priority within the Trust. An educational process and the establishment of a supportive, open and learning culture that encourages staff to report mistakes, incidents and near misses through the appropriate channels will underpin this.
