Reducing the use of restrictive interventions by changing staff attitudes

The use of restraint in health and social care services has had a high profile in recent years. The goal now for these organisations is to reduce it, and use effective preventive interventions instead. Changing staff attitudes to restraint, as part of a comprehensive training programme, is important in reducing the use of restrictive interventions. This article describes an approach to implementing training programmes, and applies aspects of this to the challenge of creating changes in the attitude of staff.
