Physical Intervention use down 37% as guide launch approaches.

26 Sep 2017

Latest data collated through the Centre for Perfect Care has revealed that Mersey Care’s in-patient areas have seen an overall reduction of 37% in the use of physical intervention since April 2016, up to and including August 2017.

This indicates that our dedicated clinical teams are continuing to build on the 25% reduction from April 2016 - March 2017 inclusive. This hugely encouraging news gives added momentum and impetus to the full launch of our Guide to Reducing Restrictive Practice event in early October, which will equip clinical teams with a range of interventions that will support them on their continued journey to a restraint free future through our No Force First programme.
