Government has recently published legislative changes to the way that restraint and restrictive practices are regulated in aged care. These changes commence 1 July, leaving very little time for the sector to comply. LASA has expressed these concerns to government and to the senate committee examining this legislation.

On Friday 18 June LASA will present a webinar on the regulation of restrictive practices/ restraint. This webinar will enable members to engage with peers and relevant the practice changes that may be needed to ensure compliance. Throughout the session the focus will be on:

  • Advocacy update
  • Identifying restrictive practices vs restraint
  • Developing behaviour support plans
  • Ensuring appropriate consent arrangements
  • Answers to other frequently asked questions

Please submit questions you would like addressed to residentialcare@lasa.asn.au or post them on the CoP.
