This paper in the Journal of Intellectual Disabilities and Offending Behaviour describes the nature and impact of a restraint reduction strategy implemented within a secure learning disability service in response to the national Positive and Safe programme.
Once the programme was completed, the following results were achieved:
- prone restraint was eliminated
- mechanical restraint was eliminated
- 42% reduction in general use of restraint
- 42% reduction in use of seclusion
- 52% reduction in rapid tranquilisation.
