This conference focuses on managing control and restraint in a way that is not excessive and that is respectful of service users. There is a focus on reducing control and restraint to a minimum level. The National Quality Standard for Service User Experience (Standard 14) states that - people in hospital for mental health care who need to be controlled and restrained, or have treatment without their agreement (such as medication to calm them quickly) receive them only from trained staff. They are only used as last resort, using minimum force and making sure that person is safe” however the recent report from MIND quoted above shows that there is huge variation in both the levels and the practice of restraint across the NHS.
