Overview

The aim of this guideline is to support and improve the management of violence in mental health services by providing staff and service users with clear, practical guidelines. In producing the guideline, information from national guidance documents and the views of service users, carers and nurses were combined with a systematic review of research evidence to produce guideline statements. These statements focus upon four main areas: ward design and organization

anticipating and preventing violence

medication in the context of violence

and the prediction of short-term violence.
