Following the training, participants will have: an increased level of knowledge of the risks of delivering social services in clients’ homes, and increased skills and knowledge to assess risk levels and to take the appropriate steps to mitigate risk. Risk Management policies and resources from Canada, the US and other countries have been integrated into this practical and informative workshop.
