Burdett Trust for Nursing – New Grants Programme: Reducing Restrictive Interventions

  Saturday, 01 Feb 2020 | Funding Deadline

The Burdett Trust for Nursing is a charitable organisation that makes grants to nurses, midwives, health visitors and allied health professionals for projects that will improve patient care.

The following grant programme is open for applications:

  • Safeguarding Service Users from Abuse and Harm: Restrictive Interventions, Restraint, Physical Controls and Restrictive Practices – grants of £20k to £100k

The Trust believes nurses are well-placed to take a leadership role in designing, modelling and implementing more appropriate forms of non-intrusive crisis intervention and behavioural management. More evidence is needed to establish what works safely and effectively, supported by measures such as reduced stimulation, active listening, diversionary techniques, de-escalation interventions, boundary setting and the use of appropriate medication.

Deadline for proposals: Midnight on 1st February 2020
