A survey of practice at a regional forensic service: what do forensic psychiatrists do? Part II: Treatment, court reports and outcome



A survey of practice at a regional forensic service: what do forensic psychiatrists do? Part II: Treatment, court reports and outcome



British Journal of Psychiatry 160: 773-776



Nearly half of those seen in a forensic service were offered some form of help, but it did not reliably match that requested. In 63% of court reports there was no specific treatment recommendation, but where there was, it was likely to be accepted. Only one-third of all out-patients completed the treatment offered -40% of the lapses were due to imprisonment. One-third of out-patient treatments were conducted under conditions of probation orders, and this form of compulsion was associated with a significantly higher number of completed treatment plans. Personality disorder was also associated with more treatment completions. These and other findings are discussed to assist in an understanding of the service.
