  • Risk Management Strategies in Field
    Assume a proactive stance-Be aware/Prepare
    Reduce foreseeable risk (best practices) –follow procedures, stay competent and current
    Educate yourself and your intern in ethics, safety, best current practices in your field
    Supervision is the primary tool
    Share the burden of risk – you are never alone as Field Instructor or Intern
    Follow established, written procedures in agency, field education; keep current records.
    Remember: MORE WORK WITH LESS SUPPORT & FEWER RESOURCES = INCREASED LIABILITY
  • Duties of the Agency

    Bring foreseeable risk to the attention of the intern – safety plan
    Provide close and direct supervision and monitoring of intern (School requirement)
    Comply with OSHA, ADA, your accrediting body, etc.
    Understand and follow School policies and procedures (Field Manual)
