Editors Note: Below are details of a survey being conducted for Victoria in relation to the restraint of disabled people, which is used, amongst other reasons, as a behavior management technique. It is very disappointing that they are only seeking the view of service providers and not the views of family members and disabled people themselves.
The Senior Practitioner – Disability is preparing to revise the Direction on Physical Restraint and is seeking the input of staff from disability services across the state.
A 20-question online survey has been prepared, all with multiple choice questions. The survey should take no more than 5-10 minutes.
Without your input, the Direction cannot be improved to meet the needs of users.

The survey will close: 22 June.
