eWise - February 2017

 As The Royal Commission institutional response to child sexual abuse continues, we are making this year a year to focus on building capacity for agencies to respond to abuse in care.
  

Our white paper to be released next week will look at different aspects of abuse in care and help managers, program coordinators and investigators handle complaints. 


 We are launching a NEW 1 day reportable conduct program for OOHSC coordinators through community training providers Uniting in May.


Enrolments of our NEW Investigating Abuse in Care 4 day program are looking good but there is still room available - if you want to book follow the links below. 


We are looking forward to the NSW ombudsman recommendations on interviewing people with cognitive impairment and are planning a Masterclass later in the year to provide specialist input on the latest academic research, practical applications and the use of intermediaries in criminal investigations. We will keep you posted on these developments.

Unpacking the concept of reasonableness?

By Vince Scopelliti 

Is it possible that management action that is entirely reasonable could be misconstrued by a worker as an act of bullying? We take this opportunity to explore the complex concept of reasonableness as it related specifically to management action and workplace bullying.

Inference or evidence?  Professionals know the difference

By Vince Scopelliti

When we draw together two or more related elements from an investigation, add our own assumptions on the matter, and infer from this a particular conclusion this unfortunately - such inferences almost certainly arise off the back of faulty logic. A high-quality workplace investigation requires that we objectively seek and present only irrefutable and fully corroborated evidence.
