Risk Assessment and Management Awards

The APT-DICES® Award for Excellence in Risk Assessment and Management.

These annual awards were established to help keep people enthusiastic about applying great risk assessment and management. Application is simple: just 2,000 words, and the preparedness to present your submission at a mini conference here in Leicester on the 24th September 2019 if you are shortlisted.

You can apply personally, or on behalf of your service and each successful submission will be published on our website. The benefit of receiving such an award is primarily in satisfaction and status. The tangible benefit is in the form of a certificate, which states your receipt of the award. You will also be able to put the award winner logo and words “Recipient of the APT Award for Excellence in Risk Assessment and Management 2019” on your letters / emails, if you wish.

What the award looks for is:

A) a description of risk assessment and management with a patient or group of patients,

B) the intervention may feature the DICES system, although not necessarily,

C) what you describe should “inspire” other people who read it – they should have ideas they want to implement in their practice too.

To apply, there is a simple procedure and it is free of charge:

1. Write the project of up to 2,000 words.

2. Send it off to us to get to us by the end of July (email submissions to office@apt.ac).

3. If you are shortlisted for an award, come and present your project at a mini conference on the 24th September 2019, where other professionals will also present their submissions. Up to 15 minutes per paper. Hopefully this will be an enjoyable day. It’s free to attend for presenters (one per submission), £75 plus VAT for others.

4. Sit back and hope yours is the winner. The four winners will be announced and awarded that day. Being a finalist itself is something you can put on their emails, letterheads or whatever, and we’re hoping that people will be proud to do so!

DICES

The DICES® Risk Assessment & Management System.

Available in 3-day and 2-day versions.

A cogent system that actually facilitates clinical work, this is one of our most renowned courses. Thousands of UK professionals have already attended it.

With the starting point that excellent risk management involves excellent clinical practice, the DICES® Risk Assessment and Management System shows what is necessary to properly assess and manage risk easily, reliably and to the benefit of all, and this accounts for its staggering popularity.

Part one covers the nature and theory of risk assessment and management: why we do it and what we aim to achieve by it. Part two covers risk assessment specifically: if you don't notice the risk there is no chance you will manage it correctly. Part three covers risk management: there is no virtue in spotting a risk if you are not able to manage it. The end result is that not only do you know about risk assessment and management, you also have the ability and the equipment to do so reliably and well.
