We provide certified training and support to the adult care sector, equipping practitioners with the right knowledge and skills to safely and confidently respond to situations where patients, residents or service users display behaviours of concern or who have medical conditions that can present a risk of harm to themselves and others.
Adult care is all too often reported in the media for the wrong reasons. Human rights issues around the use of restraint, seclusion and segregation are a common theme of concern for service users, their families, the organisations themselves as well as those who commission services. The recent review by CQC (‘Out of sight – who cares?’) shines the light on the use of restrictive practices and highlights the need for quality training that puts human rights at the top of the agenda.
The challenge for frontline staff to ensure they are meeting the needs of each and every individual whilst ensuring their safety and welfare, is immense. Whether your service supports people with unpredictable behaviour or medical conditions where seizures can occur without warning, staff need to be skilled and confident in a range of strategies, communication skills and physical techniques to be able to respond quickly and safely, whilst acting in the best interest of the person.
With a knowledge base rooted in Positive Behaviour Support and trauma informed practice PRICE Training courses provide a human rights and person-centred framework that recognises the importance of promoting dignity, choice and inclusion for those being supported. Coupled with a range of primary, secondary and tertiary strategies, we equip delegates to make sense of behaviour and respond positively to reduce the use of restrictive practices.
Where support staff need to physically intervene, we have a range of skills and techniques; from low arousal responses to 1, 2, 3 and 4 person holding techniques as well as a number of specialist clinical care techniques. Where such restrictive practices are used, it is imperative organisations meet their obligations under the Liberty Protection Safeguards (code of practice).
