Occupational therapy professionals work with a range of people who can be at increased risk to themselves, to others, or from others. We all have a role in minimizing these risks. Conversations can be challenging but provide an opportunity to engage with patients to enhance their safety and recovery. The aim of this webinar is to raise awareness and provide knowledge on key issues involved in safety/risk assessment, particularly around how to start a conversation with somebody who may need help.
