Developing individual restrictive practice reduction plans: a guide for practice leaders
Roy Deveau and Sarah Leitch
There are plenty of resources available to support organisations to implement successful restraint reduction strategies but only limited guidance available to help teams develop individual reduction plans.
This guide complements organisational
resources and will be of use in services where people have restrictions placed upon them by those paid to support them. Some restrictions are, of course, necessary to keep vulnerable people safe, but there should always be a plan of how they can be reduced and restrictions should always be open to question.
However, a commitment to reduction is not enough – ideas need to be turned into actions. This book is for practice leaders who can support colleagues to develop person centred reduction plans and make changes that have direct impact on people’s lives.
