The Wales Applied Risk Research
Network (WARRN) is a network whose aims are to:
Improve training, dissemination and communication of research
and evidence-based practice in risk assessment and risk
● Improve standards of risk assessment and risk
management across all sectors and disciplines in Wales
Conduct and support primary and translational research on
areas relevant to risk assessment and risk management and to
improve the evidence-base in this area.
WARRN is the Wales Applied Risk Research Network:
clinical risk assessment and risk management training and
consultancy. WARRN recognises the central role of
dissemination and training to produce effective clinical
practice, which spans professional boundaries and considers
local and national policy initiatives.
A major role of the network relates to the dissemination
of what works, with whom, and in what context, and in
disseminating training that is known to be evidence-based.
WARRN has focussed its efforts on the tripartite role of:
1. Consultancy with services. Different services meet the
needs of different patient populations and have different
methods of service delivery and we have endeavoured to liaise
closely with services to try to meet the needs of these
different service models. WARRN's consultancy role is offered
free of charge.
2. The writing and delivery of evidence-based training
on topics of key relevance to clinical risk assessment and
risk management; and
3. Conducting and publishing high
quality research where gaps exist in the evidence-base.
The strategy for Adult Mental Health Services in Wales,
recommends "Every user in contact with mental health
services should have a structured assessment of risk written
in their case-records." and "The assessment of risk
and ensuring the safety of users, carers and staff could be
increased by training mental health professionals in risk
assessment and risk management" and by "ensuring that
risk assessment is multi-disciplinary and co-ordinated across
