Sample text

To make this process explicit, the topic groups took into account the following factors when assessing the evidence: ● participant factors (for example, gender, age and ethnicity) ● provider factors (for example, model fidelity, the conditions under which the intervention was performed and the availability of experienced staff to undertake the procedure) ● cultural factors (for example, differences in standard care and differences in the welfare system). It was the responsibility of each topic group to decide which prioritisation factors were relevant to each clinical question in light of the UK context and then decide how they should modify their recommendations.

In the UK, there are particularly difficult conflicts around Mental Health Tribunal evidence, where the 36 Antisocial personality disorder responsible medical officer (RMO) gives professional evidence as to the clinical care of the patient, and expert forensic evidence about the nature of the risk they pose to others. This tension arises because the Mental Health Act (HMSO, 2007) assumes that patients with mental disorders lack capacity to make good quality decisions, and that psychiatrists are therefore justified in doing what they think best, including in relation to public safety.

The conflict should not be ignored but managed by the use of evidence-based diagnostic and risk assessments that are transparent and open to challenge. Traditional methods of assessment often meet neither standard. 5 The ethics of public protection A real ethical debate exists abut the extent to which a range of healthcare professionals should be involved in public protection. On the one hand, there are those who take the view that their knowledge and expertise in assessing risk imposes a duty on them to act on that knowledge to assist in public protection from a small number of risky individuals with mental disorders (especially antisocial personality disorder and psychopathy).
