Lead Reviewer Training
Who is lead reviewer training
Lead reviewer training is a free
event for staff from a service that is a member of the
Quality Network. The training is a great learning experience for
those who are interested in leading external peer-reviews, at
medium and low secure forensic mental health services. The training
will be held at the Royal College of Psychiatrists on
9 August 2016.
The training will give potential lead
reviewers the opportunity to gain practical knowledge about how to
lead a peer-review visit. The training day will involve
presentation, discussion and workshops created to develop the
skills of a lead reviewer.
