An encouraging response to Positive Behavioural Support
Care providers across the UK are being urged to adopt Positive Behavioural Support (PBS) techniques - it's one of the core post-Winterbourne recommendations. We agree that PBS is a major step forward in care provision – this has been central to our approach for many years.
The Department of Health's final report on Winterbourne View favours Positive Behavioural Support as a key support strategy for helping people with serious challenging behaviours. This is a recommendation which we at Modus Care firmly support; we have been using PBS as a way to support all the people in our care homes since 2006 and we have seenfirst-hand the many beneficial effects.
