In June 2002 the Government issued long-awaited guidance on the use of restrictive physical interventions. The guidance is particularly addressed to staff working with adults and children with learning disabilities (including those with autistic spectrum disorders) and to those in special school settings responsible for pupils with severe behavioural difficulties associated with learning difficulties and/or autistic spectrum disorders. Describes the development of the guidance, the areas of practice it covers and its implications for managers, professionals, staff working directly service users and family carers. Asks why do we need new guidance on the use of restrictive physical interventions? Who will be affected by the guidance? How was the guidance developed? What does the guidance say? What needs to be done to implement the guidance? What still needs to be done?
