Restraint Reduction experts are set to explore the practical and policy solutions for minimising the use of restraint, including a debate on the merits of accrediting restraint training, at this year’s Restraint Reduction Network European Conference in Birmingham. 
 
Leading figures from across the health, social care, policy, education and policing sectors will participate in the Conference in Birmingham, on the 6th and 7th October, sharing their insights into best practice and the policy solutions for restraint reduction. 
 
The conference will be headlined by keynote speakers including former Care Minister and Liberal Democrat Health Spokesperson Norman Lamb MP, leading American restraint reduction expert Dr Janice LeBel and Inquest Director, Deborah Coles. 
 
Restraint Reduction Network Chair, Professor Joy Duxbury, said: 
 
“The line-up for this year’s conference makes it unmissable. The opportunity for delegates to hear from world-leading experts in the field means an unparalleled insight into the latest developments and best practice in the sector. At the core of this year’s conference will be the exploration of the practical, real world changes that need to happen, so that we can achieve our ambitious goals in reducing the use of restraint.
 
The Restraint Reduction Network is committed to ensuring the best possible outcomes for patients and practitioners. So whether it is policy or practice, we will be confronting the major challenges facing the sector both over the short and long term at this year’s conference.”
