The NDIS Disability Restrictive Practices and Behaviour Support Rules 2018 include environmental restraint as a reportable restraint from 1 July 2019. Dr Ben Richardson from Nous Group has been contracted to operationalise a definition of environmental restraint which will be used to develop, user-test and validate a measure of environmental restraint on the Restrictive Intervention Data System.
Dr Richardson will conduct a national survey of practice to provide insight regarding current views, understanding, and practice regarding environmental restraint. This is an opportunity to work collaboratively with you as experts to understand current approaches, views on best practice and practical considerations within different services.
For more information and to register your participation in the survey, contact Dr Ben Richardson:
