Physical Intervention And Physical Restraint Training

Physical restraint or intervention is often necessary in a variety of cases. For example, some patients within healthcare settings suffer from a variety of conditions which may cause them to display challenging behaviours. Behaviours in which restraint or intervention may be required include violence, aggression and self harm.

Both physical restraint training and physical intervention training programmes are designed to reduce the associated risks of intervention and restraint, enhancing the safety of all those concerned. In order to aid you in this, we offer a number of physical restraint and physical intervention course options, bespoke to your requirements.
