Book reviews Reviewed by: Fiona Poland University of East Anglia, UK Editor: Rhidian Hughes Publisher: Jessica Kingsley Publishers, 2010 ISBN: 978 1 84310 958 7 Paperback Price: Â£19.99 A recent official report on rights, risks and restraints in the care of older people (Commission for Social Care Inspection, 2007) called for the development of evidencebased policy and guidelines to inform staff and carersâ understanding of restraint and how to reduce its unnecessary use. This book provides a timely exemplar of how international collaboration between academics, practitioners and service users can provide a wealth of evidence and arguments to counter assumptions that restraining practices may be the only practical option for safeguarding some groups of older people. A weakness of edited books can be their lack of coherence. By contrast, the short chapters, diverse topics and approaches provided here, work to increase its accessibility to a wide readership and together help strengthen the case for there being real alternatives to restraint. It also provides good evidence of the many circumstances in which the ill-considered use of restraint may, in fact, be more likely to damage the health and wellbeing of people being seen as âat riskâ.
