dc.description.abstractSensory Modulation Therapy is a treatment which assists people to activate or calm themselves through the use of different sensory objects. This is a fifteen month ethics approved research project which involved the implementation of sensory modulation therapy in an adult acute inpatient unit. The three main aims of the project were to: (1) identify the range of situations in which sensory modulation can be effectively used in an acute mental health setting (2) explore experiences of patients who had received sensory modulation therapy (3) ascertain whether there was any effect on seclusion rates. Data gathering methods included a 6 month clinical file audit, 15 face to face patient interviews and pre and post training staff questionnaires. Data analysis included qualitative and quantitative methods. This presentation presents the results of the study including the diagnosis of patients who benefited from sensory modulation therapy as well as the different reasons for which it was used and the effect. Patient experiences will be presented, including reasons they used sensory modulation therapy, the impact on them and their recommendations for future use.en
