Risk Assessment


Risk Assessment should include consideration of past/present behaviours, and also any protective factors. 

It is common practice to use a standardised form of risk assessment, which may be specific to your health board.

Some points to consider:

  • Self-harm
  • Suicide
  • Alcohol
  • Illicit substances
  • Driving
  • Any children involved
  • Self-neglect
  • Harm to others
  • Violence and aggression
  • Exploitation by others
  • Physical health
  • Falls
  • Absconding
