A restrictive intervention is a deliberate act that restrict a person’s movement, liberty and/or freedom to act independently, in order to:
· take immediate control of a dangerous situation where there is a real possibility of harm to the person or others if no action is undertaken, and
· end or reduce significantly the danger to the patient or others.
A restrictive practice or intervention can include physical restraint or use of devices, medication or seclusion and it must be legally and ethically justified as both absolutely necessary to prevent serious harm and be the least restrictive option.
This session will examine restrictive intervention and the safeguards around its use in respect of those aged 18 and over. Useful for all solicitors, regardless of their area of law, this session will provide an invaluable insight into this area of mental health practice and will assist viewers develop their understanding of how to provide a service to, for example, someone who is detained under the Mental Health Act ((Indicative Behaviour IB (1.6) in accordance with the SRA standards.
