Chaired by Eric Baskind Senior Lecturer in Law, Consultant and Expert Witness in Violence Reduction and the Safer Use of Force Liverpool John Moore’s University, the forthcoming 'Ensuring Adherence to the 2018 National Quality Standard for Violence and Aggression' conference will focus on the National NICE Quality Standard on Violence and Aggression and the short-term management of violent and physically threatening behaviour among adults, children and young people with a mental health problem. You will hear practical tips and advice for adhering to the guidance including; anticipating violence and aggression, de-escalation, prevention interventions and using restrictive intervention where violence does occur so that it is dealt with in an appropriate manner that safeguards staff, other patients, and the person.

Guy Cross Mental Health Lead CQC will conclude the morning with an important session on what the CQC are looking for in terms of inspections and restrictive interventions. The CQC recently stated “We are concerned about the very wide variation between services in how frequently staff use physical restraint in response to challenging behaviour.”  Due to take place in London on Monday 10 September 2018, you will have the opportunity to network with colleagues who are working to implement and ensure adherence to the National Quality Standard, ensure best practice in the use of restraint, rapid tranquillisation and seclusion, identify key strategies to reducing harm from all kinds of restraint, self assess and reflect on your own practice with regard to Control and Restraint as well as gaining CPD accreditation points contributing to professional development and revalidation evidence.
