Oxford University Press

The aim of risk management is to ensure that effective controls are in place to mitigate identified risks. Previous chapters have identified the preliminary stages of the risk management process including risk awareness, identification, and assessment. Controlling risk is the next phase of ensuring delivery of safe high-quality care. Risk controls, also sometimes known as treatments, can take many forms depending on the location and nature of the risk. This chapter discusses risk control options, contingency planning, evaluating risk control options, and the risk treatment cycle.

Keywords:   risk management, risk control, healthcare practice, patient safety, risk control options, risk treatment cycle
