Good care practice must be person-centred and this includes risk assessment and management. Everyone is entitled to make choices, and be as independent as possible regardless of age, disability or condition. Risk enablement is taking a positive approach rather than a negative one. The assessment begins with ‘what can be done’ rather than ‘what can’t be done’.
