Office of the Senior Practitioner (SA) Restrictive Practice documents

Restrictive Practice documents:  The Office of the Senior Practitioner (OSP) has released two new guides for the South Australian Disability Services Sector:

  • The Human Rights Guide for the South Australian Disability Service Sector assists service providers in developing and implementing their human rights policies and practices. It also provides a framework for the second document.
  • The Person-centred Guide for the South Australian Disability Service Sector gives advice to service providers on how services can be made truly person-centred.

These guides complement two other documents released earlier this year, clarifying the restrictive practice requirements of disability service providers and outlining safeguarding mechanisms to eliminate the use of restrictive practices.
