Executive Summary:

In mental health and related areas there are a number of 'major incidents' that can occur, most notably to do with people losing their lives through suicide, violence or neglect, but also relating to sex offending and a whole range of serious but less tragic events. After a serious incident there often seem to be obvious 'oversights' or mistakes, although some of these can be put down to the wisdom of hindsight. This important course aims to equip managers to examine such incidents and to draw the real lessons from them, while also distinguishing those lessons from 'the wisdom of hindsight'. Vitally, the course highlights the importance of 'free lessons' where serious consequences were avoided more by luck than by judgment. One of the major methods on the course is to learn the principles of analysis by examining major incidents from other areas – road traffic accidents and air crashes – and then to apply those same lessons to mental health and related areas.

The course covers:

Overview

How to investigate

Finding out about the incident

Writing a clear account of the incident

Identifying what would have prevented the incident

Identifying Recommendations

Teaching methods include: lecture, discussion, video material, case study analysis of major incidents, practice exercises.

What you receive as a result of attending the training:

You will be registered as having attended the course, thereby gaining APT's Level 1 accreditation, and receive a certificate to this effect. The accreditation gives you access to online resources associated with the course and access to the online exam if you wish to uprate your APT accreditation to Level 2.

Your registration lasts indefinitely, and your accreditation lasts for 3 years and is renewable by sitting an online refresher which also upgrades your accreditation to APT Level 2 if you are successful in the associated online exam.

Your accreditation is given value by the fact of over 100,000 people having attended APT training. See APT accreditation for full details.
