Day 1 provides learners with the knowledge of the basic working principals of English Law, including the various Health and Safety Sections and associated Regulations, in relation to the use of physical restraint. The unit also covers the risk associated with physical restraint and how to minimise those risks through risk assessment and awareness and compliance with regulations
Day 2 develops the skills and knowledge required to enable learners to safely apply appropriate and effective methods of restraint using primarily non pain compliant methods of control. More restrictive methods of control (pain compliance) can be taught where there is a higher risk environment
Summary of outcomes
To achieve the outcomes a student must:
1. Understand the Law in relation to the use of physical restraint.
2. Evaluate the risks associated with physical restraint and consider methods to reduce the risks.
3. Demonstrate non-pain compliant methods of control and how to safely apply them
4. Where required demonstrate more restrictive methods of control and when they should be used
5. Understand the importance of Incident reports and de-briefing for all involved in restraint
