Abstract

Nurses deal with practical, ethical and moral dilemmas of restriction and restraint. This new publication, emerging from a series of RCN roadshows in 2014-15, presents the opportunity to educate nurses and nursing staff about the impact of regularly being involved in restriction/restraint and the toll this takes on their psychological wellbeing.
