Restraint Training Course For Nursing Homes


This workshop covers the role of a care provider in person-centred care and how it applies to daily practice which is fundamental in the understanding of the HSE Restraint Free Policy. Understanding a resident’s behaviour and responding to individual needs should be at the centre of patient care. All residents should be assessed comprehensively in order to establish the trigger or cause of concerning behaviour. Staff will go through their role in assessment, decision making and what procedures they use to carry out these roles.
