Sample text

A possible ethical and legal solution to the tension is for the mental health professional to gain informed consent for both risk assessments and medico-legal interviews, in which they clearly advise patients/defendants of the purpose of the interview, the use to which the material will be put and who will be informed of the outcome. Given the potentially negative outcomes of these assessments for the patient/defendant, it could be argued that existing law on informed consent and refusal of treatment requires that patients/defendants be informed that they need not answer the doctor’s questions.

For questions about interventions, the PICO (patient, intervention, comparison and outcome) framework was used. This structured approach divides each question into four components: the patients (the population under study), the interventions (what is being done), the comparisons (other main treatment options) and the outcomes (the measures of how effective the interventions have been) (see Text Box 1). Questions relating to assessment do not involve an intervention designed to treat a particular condition, therefore the PICO framework was not used.

While the extent of service planning and public funds committed to this group is significant, these services are restricted to a very small proportion of the population so they are likely to have only a minimal impact on the very large numbers of people with antisocial personality disorder, the majority of whom are in prison or in the community. 8 THE ORGANISATION AND COORDINATION OF TREATMENT AND CARE The organisation and coordination of care is the subject of a separate chapter (Chapter 4). The purpose of this section is to outline the key issues to be considered in that chapter and how they will be integrated through the guideline.
