Serious Case Reviews
Implementing the Statutory Guidance on Learning and Improvement
Tuesday 29th January 2013, Central London
Capita’s 4th National Serious Case Reviews Conference addresses how you can effectively implement new approaches to learning from serious cases and embed sustainable improvements in services that safeguard children and vulnerable adults.
The Serious Case Review (SCR) system in England is undergoing fundamental changes. Following Munro’s recommendation to use systems methodologies for SCRs, the recent DfE consultation on the Statutory Guidance on Learning and Improvement sets out a new approach to commissioning, managing and writing reviews which aims to maximise learning.
SCRs and management reviews will require you to look at not only what professionals did, but why they took that action and what this reveals about local services. Attend this timely conference to ensure that you are fully equipped to conduct effective SCRs and to translate findings into meaningful and lasting service improvement.
Expert speakers explore all of the key issues including:
· Practical delivery challenges of transitioning to the new system
· Resourcing reviews and selecting skilled, accredited and independent reviewers
· Quality assuring reviews and ensuring transparency and accountability
· Disseminating key lessons and moving away from a focus on apportioning blame
