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.
