About the course
Learning Outcomes: Restraint can be a difficult issue in care homes, and the word means different things to different people. There are many different types of restraint, ranging from active physical interventions to failing to assist a person. Minimising the use of restraint is important, but sometimes it will be the right thing to do. Knowing the individual, valuing the views of relatives and working as a team will help reduce the need for restraint.
