Towards Eliminating Restrictive Practices (TERP) Forum

The twelfth national Towards Eliminating Restrictive Practices (TERP) Forum will be held in Hobart on the 7th and 8th of November 2018, offering two days of engrossing keynote speakers and discussion about how we can meet the challenge of eliminating restrictive practices in mental health care.

The program will be organised around the theme How far can we go? and provides an opportunity for clinicians, policy makers, researchers and people with lived experience of mental illness from across Australia to share innovative ideas and be informed about evidence based policy and service delivery directions.

Tasmania is proud to host the forum for the first time in 2018, demonstrating our commitment to eliminating the use of restrictive practices and working together to create safer environments for everyone.

Tasmania is hosting the forum through the Mental Health, Alcohol and Drug Directorate (MHADD) in the Department of Health and Human Services.

For more information, to submit an abstract or register visit or contact Bec Thomas in MHADD on 6166 0773.
