Seclusion indicator data dashboards describe the frequency and duration of seclusion events that occur in acute mental health inpatient units across Aotearoa.
There is a clear rationale for continuously using data to monitor the use of seclusion in inpatient mental health services. Growing evidence over the past decade supports the need to reduce the use of seclusion and other restrictive practices. Seclusion has adverse physical and psychological impacts on both the people and staff involved (Askew, Fisher, & Beazley, 2019; Cusack et al., 2018; Hawsawi et al., 2020; Mellow, Tickle, & Rennoldson,2017).

Seclusion indicator data dashboards are built using criteria specific to adult populations (20–64-years), but also provides age filters for child and youth (0-19 years) and older people (65 and over), where this data is reported by services into PRIMHD. Click here to learn more about PRIMHD
