Reducing the use of medication as a chemical restraint has been outlined as one of the key priorities of the Royal Commission’s Interim Report.

In an effort to counteract the over-reliance on chemical restraint in aged care, stronger safeguards and restrictions will be established from 1 January 2020.

There many simple alternatives to the use of physical or medical restraints. We’ve put together a printable poster below for you and your staff to quickly refer to.

Are you seeking practical strategies to improve the customer experience and quality of your aged care service? Do you want to be at the forefront of the Royal Commission’s findings?

Building on the success of our previous Quality in Aged Care & Customer Experience in Aged Care conferences, for the first time ever, COTA, ACSA & Criterion are connecting these two essential priorities in one streamed event. Bring your team along to the 5th Quality in Aged Care conference to gain value from both streams, with in depth discussion, insights and practical strategies for your organisation.

Being held in Sydney from 18 – 19 March, this event is your chance to join industry leaders to unpack key issues with a vision for person-centred, best practice approaches.
