Why might an individual who requires care and support be more vulnerable to abuse than others?
People with different disabilities and different conditions needs care and support. This includes both positive and restrictive support and intervention. There are issues with restrictive support. It needs to be justifiable through medical, legal and ethical norms. The restrictive measures can includes physical constraint, usage of devices, medications that would restrain usual behavior, or seclusion. This method must be used only when the subject is facing serious physical harm. Even then the method should be the least restrictive ones. The individual’s needs are to be met with dignity and respect. His or her disabilities does not give others free permission to use intervention. Only when minimisation of the risk of harm is the question, restrictive methods should be used.
