Healthcare professionals feel the pressure of the responsibility to provide the best possible care when using seclusion and restraint as a last resort safty measure in mental health settings. They face various obstacles to continuous learning and improvement, from the theory-practice gap to the shortage of time, staff and facilities (Safazadeh, Irajpour, Alimohammadi & Haghani, 2018; Shadadi, Sheyback, Balouchi & Shoorvazi, 2018). The complexification of learning environments around the globe forces nursing leaders to think of new strategies to maintain and improve the quality of care. This presentation describes an online care assessment platform developed to give nurses the opportunity to declare and reduce seclusion and restraint while learning how to apply standards of care to real life clinical situations. This innovation in healthcare education effectively promotes seclusion and restraint reduction in addition to enhance the learning experience of the nursing staff.
