Our day-to-day work keeps us so busy we may not have the opportunity to provide basic education to organizational leaders, members of our department, physicians and staff about exactly what risk management is. The five basic risk management principles of risk identification, risk analysis, risk control, risk financing and claims management can be applied to most any situation or problem. Using the everyday example of riding in or driving a car, one might identify the risk of having an accident due to poor maintenance of the car, failure to keep gas in the tank, speeding or driving under the influence. The analysis of the risks identified begs one to ask, what is the worst that could happen? In our car scenario, the worst that could happen is someone loses their life. Additional analysis may determine the risk of being in an auto accident is low because the driver is never on the highway, only drives in good weather during daylight, on roads with speed limits of 30 miles per hour or less, in a well-maintained car, etc. As one can see, the analysis part of the risk management process should take the individual through several of these "what if" questions to help arrive at potential frequency and severity of an event.

Consequently, risk assessment may not be fully effective as a means to ensure safety. We used a V system developmental model, in conjunction with mixed methods, including interviews and document analysis to identify user needs and requirements. One way to address current challenges is through providing good guidance on the fundamental aspects of risk assessment. We designed a risk assessment framework, comprising: a risk assessment model that depicts the main risk assessment steps; risk assessment explanation cards that provide prompts to help apply each step; and a risk assessment form that helps to systematize the risk assessment and document the findings.
Risk management structures are tailored to do more than just point out existing risks. A good risk management structure should also calculate the uncertainties and predict their influence on a business. Consequently, the result is choice between accepting the risks and rejecting them. Acceptance or rejection of risks is dependent on the tolerance levelsthat a business already defined for itself.
