Abstract

Restraint has negative health-related and financial consequences. Policies calling for restraint reduction in mental healthcare have emerged internationally, putting increasing pressure on healthcare providers to reduce its use. A systematic review of 60 studies of restraint reduction in mental healthcare from 2004 to 2014 was conducted. Interventions were mostly multi-faceted. The majority cited reduced restraint; however methodological inconsistencies limit conclusions. Whilst this review highlights interventions that will be informative to healthcare providers, this area demands further research. This is essential not only due to political pressure, but because we as healthcare providers should be striving towards more humane mental healthcare.
