Reducing Restrictive Practice Collaborative

Our Reducing Restrictive Practice Collaborative (RRP) aimed to reduce restrictive practice by one third in participating wards. All wards in the Reducing Restrictive Practice Collaborative measured the following types of restrictive practices, as defined in the operational definitions poster:

  • Restraint – to prevent, restrict or subdue movement of the body, or part of the body of another person
  • Seclusion – confinement in a room or physical space
  • Rapid tranquillisation – use of sedative medication by injection.

We produced a resource booklet, detailing what we learnt from the collaborative as well as the roles and resources that made successful quality improvement projects that reduced the use of restrictive practices.

The booklet can be viewed online as an interactive resource and it is also available for download.
