“Three Steps to Positive Practice” is a process to guide professional practice and ensure staff remain up to date with the changes and developments in legislation and guidance regarding restrictive interventions and a rights-based approach in any health and social care context.
Key areas covered include how to:
- Develop an improved understanding of what makes a practice restrictive;
- Provide a framework for practice that embeds a rights-based approach and puts the person at the centre of decision-making processes;
- Understand the importance of working within legal, ethical and professional accountability frameworks;
- Understand the “Three Steps to Positive Practice” process and what a rights-based approach means;
- Reflect on a number of case studies, identifying where the “Three Steps to Positive Practice” framework could be implemented.
Three Steps to Positive Practice is endorsed by the Royal College of Psychiatry; the Royal College of Nursing; the British Association of Social Work; and the College of Occupational Therapy.
