Managing risk effectively involves the expertise of both professional and service user: the practitioner is an expert through training and the service user's expertise comes from their own experiences. Sharing this knowledge and working collaboratively maximises the chance of success and minimises negative impacts when things do not turn out as hoped. A key task for all staff working directly or indirectly with service users and their families/carers is to assess and describe presenting risks and, as far as possible, work with the individual and their family & carers to reduce the risk of harm.
