Managing the high risk psychiatrist

  • Nigel Fisher (a1)
Extract

Psychiatrists, politicians and the public continue to be concerned about the care of mentally ill people who are potentially dangerous or vulnerable. In this context the College convened a conference on ‘Managing the high risk patient’1, which addressed issues of risk assessment, resources and legislation. The issues debated were of relevance beyond ‘high risk’ patients and underscored the difficulties the College and the Department of Health face in trying to achieve a satisfactory level of psychiatric service and practice across the country.
