TOWARDS ELIMINATION: The 6 core strategies© for reducing restrictive interventions

In partnership with the Te Pou and the Health Quality & Safety Commission New Zealand, this workshop series aims to provide practical support, skills building and information to assist in planning and implementing organisational reduction and elimination strategies.

The six core strategies© provide an evidence-based approach to elimination of restrictive interventions (Huckshorn, 2006). They target improving leadership to drive organisational change, using data to inform practice, focusing on workforce development, using seclusion and restraint prevention interventions, employing the expertise of people with lived experience of mental illness to work alongside clinical staff, and the use of debriefing techniques to create understanding and avert the use of restrictive interventions in the future. These strategies sit alongside recovery oriented and trauma informed care as central to Victoria’s approach to reducing and eliminating seclusion and restraint.
