The Right Side of Regulation: Recording with Care

Part of BASW's Professional Development Virtual Taught Skills Programme

Inadequate case records have often been cited as a factor in cases with tragic outcomes. This course is applicable to social workers in all settings and with all service user groups - children and adults.

By the end of the day participants:

  1. Will have a greater understanding of why and what we record.
  2. Will become more familiar with historical and current themes.
  3. Will review different Professional Standards in relation to recording.
  4. Will consider what laws have to say about record-keeping.
  5. Will explore how we use our records to form and evidence our ‘defensible-decisions’.
  6. Will reflect on how we will scrutinise our records and improve the way that we record…in order to improve our services and the support we provide.

Although this is thought of as a ‘dry’ subject, this day is anything but….and most participants leave feeling more confident about what and how to record better.  It is a highly interactive and fun session! 

Delivered virtually via MS Teams.
