Guidelines for the Use of Medications that Influence Behaviour

Medications Booklet Brochure

In the disability field, medication is sometimes used to modify behaviour. Despite the necessity of this intervention, guidelines must also be in place to ensure that the individuals who require this type of medication are protected and that service providers and staff practise due diligence.

The intent of this booklet is to provide guidelines for the responsible use of medications as a restrictive approach or procedure and as part of an integrated treatment plan to address behaviours of concern, and the review and monitoring of all medication prescriptions. This booklet is primarily intended for service providers and staff, advocates, and review committees.
