Restrictive Practice

This high intensity program is delivered by AHPRA Registered Nurses. Lead by our experienced mental health clinician!

Restrictive practice means any practice or intervention that has the effect of restricting the rights or freedom of movement of a person with disability. Under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (Restrictive Practices and Behaviour Support) Rules 2018 certain restrictive practices are subject to regulation. These include seclusion, chemical restraint, mechanical restraint, physical restraint and environmental restraint.

This training program is designed to give support staff the tools to follow a positive behaviour support plan (PBSP) and implement restrictive practice. At all times, the PBS practitioner is responsible for the PBSP plan and will have their own strategies for providing these supports.
