This two-part training series outlines the important factors associated with restrictive interventions. The goal of this series is to aid you to better care for people that you help on a daily basis. We will provide vital information that will help you to be a more empathetic, compassionate, empowering source of care for those you help. The purpose of this training is to reduce the use of restraint as much as possible and to ensure that:
- The least restrictive methods of intervention are used and that, wherever possible, alternatives are first attempted and determined ineffective.
- The rights and well-being of individuals are protected during the use of restraint.
By participating in this series, you help ensure that the individuals you are caring for receive the utmost respect for their dignity, rights, choice, and voice; even when a restrictive intervention must be used to ensure safety.
PLEASE NOTE: Participation in this series does not replace the HHSC requirement for Restrictive Intervention training that includes training on physical restraints.
