As we move into the final stages of COMPARE: Establishing components of programmes to reduce restrictive practices: an evidence synthesis, we are pleased to announce that we will share our findings at a dedicated event:
Reducing Restrictive Practices: Understanding Key Intervention Components
12.30-15.30 5 June 2019
Horizon Conference Centre, Leeds
We have identified and mapped over 100 interventions that have been implemented in various adult mental health settings across the world. A free, interactive directory will be made available following this event. Using a specially designed taxonomy, we were able to discern between the active components of a substantial proportion of these interventions. Consequently, for the first time, we will be able to indicate which intervention components have the most (or least) potential to reduce restrictive practices.
We will also introduce a new study that builds on and extends this work: CONTRAST: Establishing components of interventions to reduce restrictive practices with children and young people: an evidence synthesis. Here, we will seek to identify interventions to reduce restrictive practices with children in a range of residential settings.
“We particularly encourage service users and carers to come along and join in the discussion.”
A draft programme for the event can be found below. Please join us for a complimentary lunch from 12.30 onwards. We hope that we will be joined by a wide range of stakeholders with an interest in the reduction of restrictive practices for plenty of networking and discussion. We particularly encourage service users and carers to come along and join in the discussion and we can cover travel expenses for those who wish to do so. Please contact us to make arrangements.
Tickets are available via Eventbrite.
