Description

oidable and necessary to ensure a resident’s safety or the safety of others, restrictive practices are an infringement of a person’s fundamental rights to personal liberty and bodily integrity. This is echoed in The Department of Health (2011) document on restraint in nursing homes as well as national standards, regulations and policies governing residential care settings for older people. In recognising this, the study day encourages participants to take a positive and proactive approach in reducing and eliminating the use of restrictive practices in their residential care facility. It also explores the use of alternatives and encourages participants to take a person centred rather than blanket approach to the use of appropriate alternatives.
