Aim: To develop and validate a targeted interventions catalogue based on previous research for use in the reduction of mechanical restraint in forensic mental health services (FMHS).

Methodology: The methodology of American pragmatism will be applied as the overall research approach, using the following sub-studies: 1. Develop interventions catalogue draft by qualitative analysis of existing data published in Tingleff et al. 2019a; Tingleff et al. 2019b; Gildberg et al. 2021; 2. Develop interventions catalogue by systematic literature searches of evidence-based interventions to reduce coercive measures; 3. Content validation of the interventions catalogue in interviews with patients, carers and staff.

Findings (preliminary): The results of sub-study 1 and 2 will be presented at the conference. Significance for practice: The results are expected to contribute to a safer environment in FMHS. Relevance for theme: This study develops knowledge of patient, carer and staff perceptions of violence and mechanical restraint prevention.
