Restraint Reduction Network Training Standards mini-series

April 1 will mark 2 years since the launch of the Restraint Reduction Network Training Standards, and from April 2021 the CQC will expect all services across health and social care to only use training in restrictive practices that is certified as complying with the Restraint Reduction Network Training Standards.

To mark this, and help you practically comply with the Standards, we are running a mini-series of webinars about the RRN Training Standards. Some of these have already taken place, and the recordings can be accessed below.
