Abstract

Safewards is a theory and specific strategies for inpatient mental health services, intended to create a safer and more supportive environment. Safewards was trialled in Victorian wards, this project will utilise the information collected in the trial. It aims to understand the impact of the implementation of Safewards from the perspectives of consumers and staff. Ultimately my research will provide evidence about the appropriateness of Safewards in Victorian mental health inpatient services.
