Multiprofessional care in forensic psychiatry: Realities and constraints

  • N. V. Griffin (a1)
Extract

The concept of multidisciplinary care has arisen from the recognition that there are many areas in medicine and psychiatry which require professional skills and expertise in addition to those possessed by doctors and nurses. The attitude of psychiatrists towards this development has varied from enthusiasm to alarm. Whereas the latter may be understandable in the face of recent publications which portray the profession as being under threat, Bennett (1988) has addressed these changes in a positive manner, and it is surely more responsible to regard the emergence of related professions as a source of assistance rather than hazard.
