  1. Assessing the needs of patients in secure settings : a multi-disciplinary approach.

    Article - En anglais

    The mental health service needs of all North London patients in medium (N=97) and maximum security (N=79) were assessed.

    Patients and key nurses were interviewed using validated measures and, for patients in maximum security, the respective responsible medical officers (RMOs) also completed a standard enquiry form.

    Multi-disciplinary panels from the catchment areas then rated immediate and future needs for security and treatment.

    Unlike previous studies, we found only 25% of patients ready for an immediate move to lower security and a greater disparity between those thought ready for discharge by their Special Hospital RMO and those thought ready for discharge by the local panels.

    We identified a particular unmet need for long-term, 24-hour, nurse-staffed accommodation, rather than long-term medium security.
