LCAS recorded webinars – risk assessment and mental health

LCAS have co-produced three recorded webinars with Citation, the first two of which can be watched on-demand here.

Staff and mental health

It is essential that employers understand the importance of staff wellbeing all of the time, and especially now. The impact that COVID-19 has had on many staff in the sector has been huge, and we should not assume that everybody is coping.

With that in mind, some of the key discussion points within the webinar include:

  • What employers do to ensure they are supporting their staff with wellbeing and mental health;
  • Practical solutions for how providers can monitor both service user and staff mental health and wellbeing;
  • Managing driving risk, tiredness and stress from the additional pressures of COVID-19, particularly in domiciliary care.

WATCH THE WEBINAR

COVID-19 risk assessments

With this and the HSE rapidly increasing the regularity of its spot checks, putting your COVID-secure risk assessment (s) in place has to be your number one priority.

To help care providers get to grips with risk assessments and avoid common pitfalls, LCAS has co-produced a bite-sized recorded webinar with Health & Safety experts, Citation. This 15-minute webinar provides some actionable top tips.

WATCH THE WEBINAR

Some of the key discussion points within the webinar include:

  • The measures that providers need to consider in respect of their infection control arrangements;
  • How care providers can make sure their staff are aware of what they need to do;
  • Any specific issues providers need to consider with respect to vulnerable staff or at-risk groups, such as BAME.

Got any questions or looking for support?

If you’d like to discuss any aspects of the Health & Safety side of your business or are looking for external support, please click here. You can book a one-hour slot with Citation to chat about your LCAS member benefit and the support they offer.

The aim of the RM network is to provide opportunities for RMs to step back from the service they run and reflect on what can be done better, hear about new ways of working and share and learn from peers.  It is an important chance to network and build links with others in similar positions and to explore different ways of resolving difficult and ever-changing issues.

It is a simple way of supporting the development and delivery of high-quality services that meets the needs of service users.

Some of you will already have signed up and be members of the RM Network, either personally, or as an organisation.  If you haven’t, do look at https://www.skillsforcare.org.uk/Leadership-management/support-for-registered-managers/membership/membership.aspx and consider the benefits of joining.
