Care needs of people with mental illness and aggression

  • Andrew Stevens (a1), Pamela Gooder (a1) and Nicholas Drey (a1)
Abstract

People with violent or dangerous behaviour represent a considerable health care burden. The health needs of this group have been considered a priority in recent years. Both health commissions and psychiatrists need to know the numbers of patients that they are responsible for and whether their needs are being met. The appropriateness of placement was used as the measure of need for this study.
