Research shows an over-reliance on the use of medication to address behaviours of concern in people with disability, despite the significant negative impact on health and wellbeing. Collaboration between the prescribing practitioner, behaviour support practitioner and the implementing service provider is crucial to good outcomes and the safe reduction and/or elimination of chemical restraints. This three-part webinar series is suitable for Positive Behaviour Support Practitioners, Implementing Providers and Support Coordinators.
