RRN Webinar: The impact of organisational climates and cultures on critical incidents and the use of restraints
Dr. Michael Nunno D.S.W (Cornell University) addresses organisational structures and processes that influence fatal adverse events. Based on the examination of 74 restraint fatalities in the United States over 25 years (1994-2017), his thesis is that restraint fatalities often occur within psychologically and physically unsafe cultures and climates that depend on compliance and control. He urges organisations to move from blaming individual characteristics, such as ineptitude and lack of skill, towards an analysis of systemic sources of error with subsequent organisational learning and remediation. He offers six principles for leaders to adopt if they are using physical or mechanical restraints as a safety intervention.
The presentation will be followed by a question and answer session.
