DASH risk assessment

Quickly exit this page

Risk assessments have different stages:

  1. Identification of risk
  2. Risk assessment
  3. Professional judgement
  4. Risk management/safety planning.

Since risk is fluid, this should be a dynamic process which will adjust to the risk assessment of harm according to changes in circumstances.

For more information on completing a DASH risk assessment see the SafeLives DASH risk checklist.
