Benefits of Using RIAMS: Sharing Information

3rd December 2018 RIAMS

There are a few ways to share information through RIAMS and in this post, we are going to focus on how everyone can do this through RIAMS Communities.

For those who do not use Communities, this is our free discussion platform which is limited for use by those with a local government email address. There is a variety of public communities available for all users and RIAMS subscribers have the additional option to create private groups for discussion and information sharing.

We spoke with a couple of subscribers from Northern Ireland, Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council and Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, about creating private communities, why this method works for them and how it’s helped. This is what they had to say:

“The Department of Health’s (DoH) Home Accident Prevention Strategy (2015-2025) sets out the regional strategic policy that is necessary in order to achieve a reduction in the number of accidental deaths and injuries in the home. The Public Health Agency (PHA) is the lead on the implementation of the strategy, with councils being specifically identified as having a role in delivering the Strategy. The Home Accident Prevention Strategic Implementation Group (HAPSIG) is the over-arching, multi-organisational regional group and an action plan was drawn up to enable implementation of the strategy. To assist with this, 3 sub-groups were set up:

1. Home Safety Check Scheme Sub-group
2. Communications and Education Sub-group
3. Research and Development Group

“To help with sharing of information across the various organisations, a HAPSIG Communications and Education Community was set up under RIAMS. The Community easily enables the group to collectively pool resources and share examples of good practice. It was also developed to be a central point for accessing minutes of sub-group meetings, regional and national policy, and information campaigns.”

If you would like to find out more about creating private groups in Communities and how these can help, please contact us on riams@rheglobal.com or call 01239 711793. Additionally, if there are any features in addition to those above you’d like us to highlight, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us on kwright@rheglobal.com or call 01239 711793.
