PMVA Breakaway and restraint methods level 2
Suitable for mental health, forensic and secure type services.
- Course Profile
This course is over four days (30 hours of continuing professional development). The four day course covers safe holding restraint methods and the full ECC&R (UK) Ltd. NHS control and restraint (PMVA) syllabus with more in depth training on several different methods of restraint and can include current seclusion policies. It is suitable for anyone working in an environment which is either closed or providing forensic type services for the young, adult or elderly patients (subject to section or capacity). These courses are in alignment with ECC&R (UK) Ltd training teams developed for "train the trainers".
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.
