Minimising Restrictive Practices

  • : Sydney NSW 2000

Learning Activity Description

The minimisation of restrictive practices and the rights of all people to live in a restraint-free environment are essential elements of care under the Aged Care Quality Standards. The misuse of chemical and physical restraint is a priority of the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission and has been identified as of specific concern by the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety.

This topic explores the misuse of restrictive practices, the serious risk for harm and presents alternative and practical strategies to support people with actions and responses that pose a risk to their safety or the safety of others.

Restraint aligns to Standards 3 and 8 of the Aged Care Quality Standards. As a health care worker providing care or services to older people living in residential or home care you are required to practice in accordance with the requirements of the Aged Care Quality Standards.

This learning resource will have relevance in other health care settings providing care or services to older people.

This educational material is endorsed by the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation.
