Practical approaches to minimising restraint

Author:
SOCIAL CARE INSTITUTE FOR EXCELLENCE
Publisher:

Publication year:
2015
Pagination:
8 minutes 20 seconds
Place of publication:
London

This film uses two examples to illustrate how restraint can be minimised. The first example describes the experience of Peter, who is living in a care home and has a urinary tract infection. A common side effect of such infections is confusion, which is made worse by Peter's Alzheimer's disease. The second story is about Florence, a lady in her 80's who had developed a chest infection and had been admitted to hospital suffering delirium. Key messages for practice are: sometimes it is necessary to apply restraint in the person's best interests; the need for restraint has to be reassessed on each and every occasion as people's needs and capacity change; using a person-centred approach and understanding a person's life story is vital; and talking with colleagues, carers families and people who use services can help to minimise restraint.

Publication year:

Pagination:

Place of publication:
Edinburgh

The Realising Recovery learning materials have been designed to support mental health workers to develop their recovery focused practice. They build on The 10 Essential Shared Capabilities (Scotland) learning materials and are designed to provide further learning to enable mental health workers to work alongside service users as they create their own recovery journeys. The learning materials will also be useful for mental health service users and carers either in their role as trainers involved in delivering the learning or as learners exploring and developing their understanding of recovery focused practice and what they can expect from mental health workers and services. The learning materials aim to enable workers to make changes in their practice and support change by presenting key topic areas in relation to recovery and practical guidance to help workers develop new roles, relationships and ways of working with service users and wider communities. The learning materials aim to be practical and action focused and provide links to wider reading and resources. The six modules cover understanding recovery, using self to develop recovery focused practice, enabling self-direction, providing person-centred support, sharing responsibility for risk and risk-taking, and connecting with communities.
