Course Content

Restrictive practices involve the use of interventions that have the effect of limiting the rights or freedom of movement of a person.  

Decisions about the type and use of restraint are often made in hurried and pressured circumstances.  There has been concern that restraints are used in some instances as a means of coercion, discipline, convenience or retaliation by staff. 

Understanding the principles and guidelines governing the use of restraint is essential.  That will be the focus of this webinar.
