The aim of the study is to investigate the significance of the different changes made to the environment in an adolescent psychiatric ward for the prevalence of restrictive interventions.
In a retrospective study, information is being collected from documents on interventions targeted reduction of the use of restrictive practices in the ward. In the same period, incidence of restrictive practices was registered in the region's electronic register. A comparison of interventions and the incidence of restrictive practices will be performed using descriptive statistic and time series analysis.Preliminary inspection of data suggests that the interventions have had a significant effect. In connection with COVID-19, some of the interventions were suspended, which appears to have had a negative impact on the incidence of restrictive practice in the ward.
