  1. A study of aggression among referrals to a community-based psychiatry of old age service.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    The aims of the study were to examine the prevalence of aggressive behaviour in a non-selected community-based population, to identify clinical and sociodemographic variables associated with aggression and to examine the relationship between aggression and outcome at 2-year follow-up.

    Design

    Case series, using the Ryden Aggression Scale as a retrospective measure of aggression.

    Setting

    A community-based specialist psychiatry of old age service.

    Participants

    All referrals to the service over a 3-month period.

    Results

    Of the 42 subjects included in the study, 25 patients had a diagnosis of dementia.

    Aggressive behaviour was reported in 18 patients, this being verbal only in nine cases and both verbal and physical in nine cases.

    Sexual aggression and self-injurious behaviour were each reported in one case only.

    Aggression was found to be positively associated with a diagnosis of dementia and high physical dependency but was not found to be associated with age, sex, physical illness or the use of psychotropic medication.

    At 2-year follow-up, aggressive patients were found to have a higher rate of admission to psychiatric inpatient or residential care and tended to have a higher use of neuroleptic drugs.

    Conclusions
