New restrictive practice legislation: what prescribers need to know

Wednesday, September 1st 2021
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The webinar will outline the changes introduced by the Australian Government from 1 July 2021 for aged care providers, including the requirements that must be demonstrated prior to any restrictive practice being used.

The session will outline assessments required by approved health practitioners who may prescribe a restrictive practice, the new requirement for a 'restrictive practice substitute decision-maker' if a person does not have capacity to give informed consent for that practice, and discuss the context of restrictive practice in relation to behaviour support.
