Code: SGC/20/1150 Defensible Decision-Making

CURRENTLY DELIVERED AS A WEBINAR - you will be sent an invite to join (this will be from Sarah Clay, Central Consultancy)

This workshop is for South Gloucestershire Council Adult Care practitioners ONLY
. Its key purpose is to equip staff with the knowledge, skills and confidence to make judgements and clearly record the rationale for decisions that are robust, supported by the relevant evidence and defensible when scrutinised by others. Practitioners need to assess people’s needs and their desired outcomes and then make decisions that keep that person and their carers at the heart of the assessment and support planning process. In all aspects of their work they have to find ways to balance a number of competing pressures including arranging person-centred care and support that meets Care Act and Mental Capacity Act requirements, whilst also managing risk and safeguarding issues effectively, using the organisation’s recording policy and using resources effectively.

These 50 minute coaching sessions with coaches will assist council staff in coming up with strategies and action plans to maintain and build their wellbeing and resilience.

There are activities and exercises that wellbeing coaches can also give people to work through in their own time if they would find it useful.
