Practical approaches to minimising restraint

Place of publication:

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.

Personal budgets: risk enablement and mental health

This film showcases the work of Stockport Council and Pennine Care NHS Trust. As part of their risk enablement strategy for personal budgets and mental health they established a risk enablement panel as a last resort for discussing final support plans for people considered to be at risk. However, in the three years since the panel was established, they have only used it twice. Stockport has also committed to a culture change where staff and service users are able to openly discuss positive risk taking and concerns about risk. This has resulted in people with mental health problems (even those with more complex needs who use a budget managed by a third party) being able to use their personal budgets more creatively. They are experiencing positive outcomes such as improved confidence and self-determination and greater levels of activity. They also have more opportunities to take up volunteering and training for employment.

For these documentary films, three families where one of the parents had mental health problems were filmed over a six month period. Often through the eyes of the children, the films show how the family is affected and how the children cope with traumatic situations. Issues covered include parents overdosing or repeatedly self-harming and children having to go repeatedly into care. As part of the process the families also filmed themselves to produce video diaries of their thoughts and experiences.
