In 2020, the first national mandatory standards for training in restrictive practices were launched in England. The Restraint Reduction Network (RRN) Training Standards apply to any organisation delivering training on restrictive practices (including restraint) in mental health and learning disability settings. This presentation will outline the findings of a research study funded by the Burdett Trust for Nursing, examining the views and experiences of organisations who implemented the Standards. A sequential mixed method design was used, involving an online survey, in-depth interviews, and consultation workshops. Quantitative data were analysed using descriptive statistics, while qualitative data were analysed in Nvivo using thematic analysis. In this session, we will outline key findings and implications for future training and practice. Mandatory standards are one piece of the puzzle towards reducing restraint – we will reflect on challenges and advantages of such standards and how they could be transferred to other settings or countries.
