About this event

Restrictive practices can impinge on an individual’s human rights, and home care and NDIS providers are required to ensure that any practice does not breach these rights.

🌟 Do you know the requirements for any restrictive practice?

🌟 Do you know who can administer a restrictive practice?

🌟 Do you know your responsibilities with SIRS when it comes to restrictive practice?

Are you aware that the ACQSC now expects providers to have a comprehensive approach to minimising or eliminating restrictive practices and to have evidence of staff training relating to this topic? 

A restrictive practice is any practice or intervention that has the effect of restricting the rights or freedom of movement of an aged care consumer.”  

Under the legislation, there are five types of restrictive practices:

  • Chemical restraint
  • Environmental restraint
  • Mechanical restraint
  • Physical restraint
  • Seclusion.

The definitions of these practices were developed to offer providers a comprehensive understanding of what constitutes a restrictive practice and the appropriate contexts for its application. By aligning these definitions with those in the NDIS, consistency and clarity are fostered across care settings, promoting effective communication and implementation of guidelines.

🔥 Overview

This workshop is designed to offer practical guidance on managing restrictive practices within home care. Participants will delve into a comprehensive understanding of what constitutes restrictive practices, exploring their implications and the core principles of person-centred care. Through dynamic interactions, group discussions, and in-depth analyses of scenarios, attendees will learn to identify and categorise restrictive practices and gain valuable insights into the nuanced process of implementing them appropriately.

By the end of the workshop, participants will be equipped with a robust toolkit of strategies and approaches to navigate the complexities of restrictive practices with confidence and compassion in their caregiving roles.

When it comes to online training, we know that staring into the “virtual classroom” can sometimes miss those moments that face-to-face events deliver. So, we are mixing things up. In a time of transformation in the sector, we want to make sure now, more than ever, that you are being supported. We will be focusing even more on interactive, immersive training sessions (think break-out rooms, cameras on (yes scary), opportunities to network, and of course maintaining the LPA way of tangible tools and resources).
