Tardive dyskinesia: screening and risk disclosure

  • Robert Chaplin (a1) and Mark Potter (a1)
Abstract

A questionnaire was sent to a random sample of 339 psychiatrists on the Royal College mailing list, enquiring about their practice of screening and risk disclosure in patients at risk of tardive dyskinesia. The response rate was 70%. There was wide variation in the rate of informing patients of the risk. Over half of the respondents felt that knowledge about tardive dyskinesia would reduce compliance, a view which predicted a low rate of informing patients. There was support for the issuing of clinical practice guidelines by the College. Psychiatrists need further education about tardive dyskinesia.
