Mental health seclusion and restraint NBEDS 2015-

Identifying and definitional attributes

Metadata item type:Data Set Specification
METeOR identifier:558137
Registration status:Health, Standard 13/11/2014
DSS type:Data Set Specification (DSS)
Scope:

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.

Collection and usage attributes

Statistical unit:

Aggregate collection of seclusion and restraint events (including related information) at the hospital level and, disaggregated by target population, at the specialised mental health service level (as hospital sub-units).

Implementation start date:01/07/2015
Comments:

This NBEDS is likely to undergo continuous enhancements as data definitions and information systems are developed that improve the availability of information for collection at lower levels of analysis (e.g. separation, seclusion/restraint event and person level data).
