Level of Development of Clinical Ethics Consultation in Psychiatry - Results of a Survey Among Psychiatric Acute Clinics and Forensic Psychiatric Hospitals



Level of Development of Clinical Ethics Consultation in Psychiatry - Results of a Survey Among Psychiatric Acute Clinics and Forensic Psychiatric Hospitals



Psychiatrische Praxis 2018



The aim of this article is to assess the level of development of clinical ethics consultation in psychiatric institutions in North Rhine-Westphalia. Survey among medical directors, directors of nursing and administrative directors of all psychiatric acute clinics and forensic psychiatric hospitals in North Rhine-Westphalia. 113 persons working in psychiatric acute clinics responded (reponse rate: 48 %) and 13 persons working in forensic psychiatric hospitals (response rate 54 %). We received at least one response from 89 % of all psychiatric acute clinics and from 100 % of all forensic psychiatric hospitals. 90 % of the responding psychiatric acute clinics and 29 % of the responding forensic psychiatric hospitals have already implemented clinical ethics consultation. Clinical ethics consultation is more widespread in psychiatric institutions than was hitherto assumed. Future medical ethics research should therefore give greater attention to the methodology and the quality of clinical ethics consultation in psychiatric practice. Erhebung von Daten zur Verbreitung und zum Entwicklungsstand von klinischer Ethikberatung in psychiatrischen Institutionen in Nordrhein-Westfalen. Umfrage unter Ärztlichen Direktoren, Pflege- und Verwaltungsdirektoren aller psychiatrischen Akutkrankenhäuser und Maßregelvollzugskliniken in Nordrhein-Westfalen. Aus 89 % aller psychiatrischen Akutkrankenhäuser und 100 % aller Maßregelvollzugskliniken liegt mindestens ein Fragebogen vor. 90 % der antwortenden psychiatrischen Akutkrankenhäuser und 29 % der Maßregelvollzugskliniken halten Strukturen der klinischen Ethikberatung vor. Strukturen der klinischen Ethikberatung sind in psychiatrischen Institutionen weiter verbreitet als bislang in der Forschung angenommen.
