Humane staff required to deliver cruel care? The dilemma of restrictive practice in aged care.

November 18 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Free

9.30am Arrival and registration
10.00am Start

All too often restrictive practices are presented as measures to keep people safe, both residents and staff.

But the appalling practices that we are hearing about through the Royal Commission do anything but create an environment and culture of safety for all.

This event will explore how we manage behaviours of concern when staff are also vulnerable in jobs with significant expectations and little time, in situations which can create fear and challenge personal safety.

SPEAKERS:

  • Prof. Joe Ibrahim, MB, BS, GradCert HighEd, PhD, FAFPHM, FRACP – Head, Health Law and Ageing Research Unit, Department of Forensic Medicine, Monash University
  • Dr. Juanita Breen Senior Lecturer, Wicking Dementia Research and Education Centre, University of Tasmania.
  • Micaela Cronin, Director FSSI, RMIT University
