Masterclass: The Use of Restrictive Interventions: The legal framework
Tuesday 7 June 2016
Hallam Conference Centre, London
Healthcare professionals may not think that they use restrictive interventions but enhanced observations, physical restraint, mechanical restraint, manual restraint, rapid tranquilisation, searches, seclusion and long-term segregation are all considered to be restrictive interventions and should be used with appropriate policies and procedures in place. It is important that restrictive interventions are used appropriately, legally and ethically and also part of a care programme aimed at reducing the interventions.
Delegates will have the opportunity to raise issues and concerns specific to their own practice. The course will be run by a practising Mental Health care lawyer and will be case study led.
