Mental health seclusion and restraint NBEDS 2015-
Identifying and definitional attributes
|Metadata item type:||Data Set Specification|
|DSS type:||Data Set Specification (DSS)|
The scope of the Mental health seclusion and restraint National Best Endeavours Data Set (SECREST NBEDS) is all specialised mental health public hospital acute service units. Short stay mental health units are in scope, e.g. Psychiatric Emergency Care Centres.
Wards or units other than specialised mental health services, such as emergency departments, are out of scope.
Specialised mental health acute forensic hospital services are in scope, regardless of which department manages the service, for example health versus correctional services department.
Physical and mechanical restraint are in scope for this collection. While chemical/pharmacological restraint is defined in some jurisdictional Mental Health Acts, issues around definitions and collection preclude nationally comparable data supply activities for this category of restraint. Therefore, chemical/pharmacological restraint is out of scope for the purposes of data collection for the SECREST NBEDS.
