Evaluating Safewards Victoria
Safewards is a clinical model and intervention developed in the UK that seeks to reduce conflict and the use of seclusion and other restrictive interventions in acute inpatient psychiatric wards. Since 2014, researchers at the CPN have lead the evaluation of the Victorian government funded implementation of Safewards in the state of Victoria. The implementation of Safewards in Victoria is the most substantial and systematic in the world to date.
Experiences of Engagement
PhD candidate Ms Rachel Tindall is conducting a qualitative longitudinal study of the experience of engagement in early psychosis services, for young people, carers and case managers.
Views on seclusion and restraint, and ways to reduce their use
In this study, a large interdisciplinary team explored Australian views about a range of restrictive practices (seclusion, mechanical restraint, physical restraint, chemical restraint and emotional restraint), using a mixed methods approach funded by the National Mental Health Commission.
