Ep 002: Are Reviews Adding Value or Adding Unnecessary Layers of Improvement Action?
Play • 36 min

The essential, inescapable question we have to ask ourselves & be held accountable for. Are you ready?

The conversation I will share with you is an eye opener. A wake up call, in a good way. It’s a more gentle form of challenge than you might think, so don’t be afraid. Trust me. You can dive in.

Listen in to reflect with us about recommendations about training, polices & procedures, how to formulate succinct review questions which focus on new learning.

And when two podcasters get together it’s inevitable that we overflow with excitement about the power of the podcast to share developments in real time.

Let us know how the issues reflect your reviews or your partnership. The conversation speaks about reviews involving child safeguarding cases, but much of what we discuss is transferrable to Safeguarding Adult Reviews & Domestic Homicide Reviews.

To be in with a chance of winning one of our giveaways, please send proof of an apple podcast review. If you don’t use apple please use a friend or colleague’s device [with permission, of course].

The final step Is to send a screen shot as proof of the review & you will be entered into the draw to catherine@reviewconsulting.co.uk.

Good luck.
