Royal College of Nursing Consultation on Restraint in Health and Adult Social Care (RCN)

Summary

The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) has been commissioned by the Department of Health to review and develop guidance on positive behaviour support (PBS) and the minimisation of restrictive practices across health and adult social care. The consultation closes on February 13th 2014.

“This consultation and draft guidance which has been developed in conjunction with a range of professionals, patients, service users, their families and carers is the result of that initial review. The Royal College of Nursing is seeking further views to help it strengthen and refine the proposed guidance, including particularly ensuring ways that the rights of individuals and their families can be promoted and examples of best practice in PBS and de-escalation techniques”.
