Abstract

This paper: • explores the relationship between policy initiatives regarding risk-taking in adult care and its claim to reflect user experience; • argues that these policy initiatives are driven by the imperative of rationalising risk management; and • claims that such policies are not a response to user demand and that more research is needed to evaluate the attitudes of users of adult care to risk- taking.
