Letter from Dr. Alain Tanoe

As a member of the Healthcare profession I am aware that there are situations when there is a need for physical intervention when all methods have been tried. Having been taught some of these moves in a previous role I am aware of how important they are and that they are there to protect both staff and the person from serious harm. On reviewing the manual for 2020 I have found it to be very clear in its instructions and the illustrations are easy to understand. Yours sincerely Dr. Alain Tanoe

Ethical Care already delivering Restraint Reduction. The Devon Partnership NHS Trust has indicated a considerable reduction in the prone restraint as figures are down by 51%, rapid tranquilisation are down by 14% and the use of seclusion down by 52% in the last two years since Ethical Care took over this contractual service and the need for restraint over this two year period has actually increased by 12%, although it is difficult to say categorically the ECC&R training is the only factor we can infer that the changes in the training and the positive attitude we have instilled through this has provided a conclusive positive impact.

Letter from General Practitoner Sekinat Abisola Oyawa

I have reviewed the ethical care control and restraint training manual for 2020. It is a detailed and informative manual with clear illustrations on defensive postures which will protect the handler and the client and cause no harm to either. Importantly, it stresses that the use of physical intervention on any person is only when all other methods have failed, and in that case only approved techniques should be used. Yours Truly, Sekinat Abisola Oyawa General Practitioner

Restraint Reduction Network (RRN) Training Standards 2019.

These standards have been developed in response to the growing concern that some of the existing training may not be of an adequate quality to maximise the safety of people who are distressed or of the staff who have the difficult task of supporting them. In addition such training is not always provided in context where minimisation of both risk and the use of the restrictive interventions is a priority. Therefore these standards have been been designed to provide a framework for training that scaffolds best practise. These standards will provide a national and international benchmark for training in supporting people who are distressed in education, health and social care settings. For several years we have been proactive in trying to establish National Standards for the methods used in physical intervention to comply with our Statement of Intent and Ethical Approach. We strongly believe that the vast majority of organisations, whose employees may be faced with a violent situation, are crying out for National Standards.
