This week's free access article...

Should nurses restrain violent and aggressive patients?



This article is available in full to non-subscribers until 5 November, just register for free to access.


Restraint can be an incredibly frightening experience for patients, staff and anyone witnessing the event. This week's free article discusses the effects it can have and possible less coercive methods of deescalation.

After reading the article consider:

  • Can restraint always be avoided?
  • What impact can restraint have on a therapeutic relationship?
  • How can staff make these events less stressful for the patients involved?
