Analysing adult health assessments is a key element of assessing adopters and foster carers. This includes providing reports and evidence-based comments so that panels can reach appropriate decisions. This workshop is designed to support medical advisers in their role. It is particularly suitable for new or inexperienced medical advisers.

The workshop will consider:

  • the specific role of the medical adviser when reporting on adult health assessments of adopters / foster carers
  • the issues that arise from adult health reports brought to panels including obesity, smoking and mental health as well as alcohol and cannabis use.
