AbstractThis editorial argues that current changes in secure learning disability provision, particularly the twin imperatives to reduce in-patient beds and simultaneously restrict the use of physical interventions, have implications for direct nursing care. These implications revolve around the increased complexity of the backgrounds of those with a learning disability currently requiring secure care. Learning disability nursing needs to examine its skill and knowledge base and look seriously at the value of psychiatric nursing as a means of addressing current deficits.
