Positive And Proactive Care: Reducing The Need For Restrictive Interventions

Venue: Hallam Conference Centre
44 Hallam Street

Date: 23 Oct 2014

Synopsis: Chaired by Mark Easton BBC Home Editor this conference focuses implementing the new Department of Health guidance on Positive and Proactive Care: reducing the need for restrictive interventions and on managing control and restraint in a way that is not excessive and that is respectful of service users.


There is a focus on reducing control and restraint to a minimum level. Through national and legal updates, service user perspectives, and practical case studies of implementation in practice and an interactive session on restraint techniques, the conference will provide an invaluable and practical approach to ensuring the new national guidance is implemented effectively in your service.

“We will radically reduce the use of all restrictive practices and take action to end the use of high risk 
restraint, including face down restraint and holding people on the floor” Closing the Gap: Priorities for essential change in mental health, Department of Health, January 2014
