4 Common Mistakes Which Deter Review Outcomes & How to Avoid Them

Monday 13th September 2021, 1.00-2.15pm

What is the difference in outcomes in the review in which lack of clarity & poor project management prevails & the one whose focus & attention to detail creates a safe container for professionals to learn without blame? Less poring over case detail & more consideration of learning & outcomes...

Take a moment to think about it.

Active leadership to counter potential delay, intuitive consultation & scrutiny at each stage with a mechanism for rapid resolution of mid review challenges. Less burden on agencies, reduced blame & defensiveness. Creating more space for learning & improvement work.

I am Donna Ohdedar, & I support review commissioners, participants, quality assurance professionals & reviewers to improve the quality of reviews.

You are invited to this free training designed for those involved in Safeguarding Adult Reviews, Domestic Homicide Reviews & Child Safeguarding Practice Reviews.

Join me for 75 minutes of super illuminating content plus Q & A, where I will share my framework for avoiding the potholes reviews find themselves falling in. Expect it to be full of learning and wins like these:

  • "I just wanted to register how very useful I found this workshop, which I've just managed to watch on replay. It really got me thinking and I hope, identified for me potential pitfalls and  therefore be better focused as I commence my first review. I'm very much looking forward to joining you for the two workshops in September."
  • "Thank you for the detail you provided in each example. I want to try implementing all of these suggestions..."
  • A SILP review initially commissioned on the basis of commencing with a 7 month delay due to parallel proceedings extracted immediate learning within 6 weeks in summer 2021.


In this FREE 75 minute workshop experience, you will hear how I helped reviewers & commissioners move away from situations like these :

  • local areas finding recruitment of top level reviewers a challenge; reviewers perceiving commissioning practices as a barrier to working with partnerships who are keen to learn & improve; 
  • lack of support for inexperienced participants leading to low quality contributions, defensiveness or anxiety;
  • inefficient, resource intensive meetings being held due to absence of the appropriate representatives, resulting in delay, repetition & barriers to overcoming unexpected mid review challenges.
  • over readiness to accept suggestions to review delays relating to parallel proceedings

The difference between a project whose resource is spent regurgitating & scrutinising volumes of fact & the one in which the story is shared in a way which honours the subject & the family, the practitioner contribution & the review journey succinctly.

How enhanced quality assurance and governance arrangements can deliver immediate upgrades. I will share how this delivers a final product containing everything the reader needs about what happened in a proportionate way, with the major focus on analysis and learning.

The exact steps I and my community have taken to change the approach to representation at different meetings with different purposes to reduce the overall number of meetings and cost per review.

Are you ready to unlock these changes in your next review?
