These modules are only taught after the TNA has identified a specific child or adult whose behaviour may pose a significant risk to either them or others. The skills when taught are child or adult specific, and will have a behaviour support plan, physical intervention risk reduction plan, risk assessment, record of all those who attended the training and a commitment to complete a refresher programme within less than 12 months.

Rationale

It is though accepted that in healthcare there are also concerns in relation to the safety of staff within services, and incidents which occur often go unreported (DoH 1999). It is also the case that where violent incidents can be foreseen employers have a duty to identify the nature of the risk to employees and take action to reduce foreseeable risk (DoH 1998).


Training to date has provided to date has been a one size fits all approach. This one size fits all approach to training according to McKenna HSE Linking Service and Safety 2008, and had limited relevance to the challenges they (staff) encountered in their practice setting.

Delivering care within a framework that acknowledges and protects people’s human rights. Including the rights of employees. Implementing procedures to reduce and eliminate the use of restraint and seclusion.

Ensuring that systems to review critical incidents and the use of restrictive practices, including physical interventions are ‘fit for purpose’ British Institute for Learning Disability Physical Intervention Accreditation 2010.

These modules are only taught after the TNA has identified a specific child or adult whose behaviour may pose a significant risk to either them or others.

Duration (length in hours/days)

This programme is designed to be delivered over a 1 and half day period. This should allow sufficient time to cover the theory and practical work requested. It should also allow participants to see positive benefits of the training in action when course participants return to their places of work after the course. This includes an onus on the Programme Director Martha McGinn to keep the content current with changes to policy, legislation and government published and BILD Codes of Practice. This responsibility also involves the design of all training slides, case studies, exercises, assessments and course manuals.

Course Aims

This programme has been specifically designed to meet the needs of staff working in target care settings to equip them with the skills to provide a team response to a service user when their behaviour is a risk to either themselves or others and restrictive physical intervention is the only right intervention available.
