Recent changes within Ethical Care as from 1st June 2021.

Email address for Financing and Invoice enquiries contact Daniel on  finance@eccruk.com

Email address for any Information and Course enquiries contact Lauren on  courses@eccruk.com

This is my final year working for the Company Full time and I will be taking on a Part-Time role as from January 2022.

Jenna Kassam jenna@eccruk.com the Director of Ethical Care Training has been working jointly with myself to accredit Ethical Care with Bild ACT (British Institute of Learning Disabilities Association of Certified Training)  certified as meeting the RRN (Restraint Reduction Network Standards). We applied in February 2021 and envisage accreditation by September 2021.

This has altered some of our training materials both theory and practical on all our courses, however we have already incorporated these changes as we deliver to our customers. All NHS organisations and CQC regulated services must have in place certified training in restrictive practices from April of this year or be able to demonstrate that they are in the process of being certified or affiliated to an existing certified provider.

(The CQC may allow some flexibility if there are no issues with your restrictive practice training and you would be in the process of affiliation through a provider seeking Certification and who is in that process)

We are still delivering our PMVA Level 1 and Level 2 Courses for in house instructors and trainers as and when required but we will be holding our first RRN acclimatisation Ethical Care Trainers update on the 19th July to the 23rd July 2021 at Luton. This course will include all updated Learning materials, trainers PowerPoints and manuals.  We only have space for 14 trainers on this course and 8 confirmations have already been made if you wish to book on this course please contact Tom on tom@eccruk.com

Letter from General Practitoner Sekinat Abisola Oyawa

RE: Ethical Care Training Manual 2020

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

Letter from Dr. Alain Tanoé

RE: Ethical Care Training Manual 2020

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 Tanoé
