In 2010, 29 (43.3%) approved centres recorded episodes of seclusion. Thirty-seven approved centres (55.2%) reported that they do not use this intervention. One approved centre (1.5%) indicated that seclusion is used in the approved centre but that they did not record any episodes during 2010.
In total, 2,371 seclusion episodes were reported in 2010, which is equivalent to a rate of 55.9 per 100,000 population. Compared to 2009, there was a decrease of 146 in the number of seclusion episodes recorded.|
