Restrictive Practice (Restraint)

This NMBI approved half-day course is aimed at Healthcare professionals/ employees. Whilst a basic definition of restraint might be ‘restricting movement’ or ‘restricting liberty’, many care interventions unintentionally restrict the movement of people. Some interventions can be viewed at providing protection for residents. This program encourages participants to reflect on interventions that could be seen as restraining residents if viewed from a resident’s perspective.
