SBU assess relevant and well-conducted research and investigate what effect different interventions have, if there are any risks or ethical problems, and what is most cost-effective in the areas of health care, dentistry, social services, and within the areas of functional disability and work environment.
SBU’s carrying out knowledge synthesis in the area aims to develop knowledge on alternative methods to coercive measures and to support relevant actors. The assignment is based on the results of a previous study regarding alternative methods to coercive measures within The National Board of Institutional Care, the psychiatric compulsory care and forensic psychiatric care institutions. In this study, SBU highlighted a lack of knowledge about the consequences of various coercive measures and alternatives to those for children and young people in the institutional care, as well as the association between the use of seclusion/restraint and occurrence of other coercive measures.
SBU shall gather knowledge and experience from relevant authorities, especially The National Board of Health and Welfare and The National Board of Institutional Care, regional health care institutions, The Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions, professional associations, patient and family organizations and other relevant actors, e.g. organizations representing children and young people.
Furthermore, SBU shall describe any need for continued development efforts in the area.
