ABOUT THE EVENT:

Should Acute Behavioural Disturbance be considered a Public Health Problem?

Police restraint related deaths have hit the headlines on many occasions eg Sean Rigg, Olaseni Lewis, Thomas Orchard, Terence smith, Dalian Atkinson. These have been tragic incidents with Inquest lasting many years and threats of misconduct and manslaughter against police officers. Why do people die, who is dying and what is anything can be done to prevent this?
Dr Meng Aw-Yong is an Emergency Medicine clinician and Forensic Medical Examiner (medical Director Met Police), co-author of the Royal College of Emergency Medicine Best practice Guideline of Acute Behavioural Disturbance (ABD), past member of the Independent Advisory Panel on Deaths in Custody, Expert on ABD and restraint (including response to Dame Angiolini’s review of Death in Police Custody).
He will explore what causes these deaths and how they can be reduced but more importantly who can make these changes and why there has been such a long delay to change?
