Restricted practices

Legislative requirements in NSW are increasingly prohibiting the use of restrictive practices in key industries such as out of home care, disability support, respite care and day programs for the disabled. Staff working in these areas need to understand their responsibilities regarding client rights and if their everyday client management procedures incorporate restrictive practices they will need to be modified or reconsidered under new legislation.

All agencies in the client services sector that have employees using restrictive practices will need to document, monitor and phase out these practices. This training will also introduce participants to the strengths-based model of case management and recovery and how it can be used in community-based services to replace a restrictive practices model and improve outcomes for clients.
