dc.descriptionThis is an Author's Original Manuscript of an article published by Taylor & Francis in International Journal of Forensic Mental Health on 15/01/2018, available online: http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/14999013.2017.1405124.en
dc.description.abstractThis rapid review summarises currently available information on the definition, prevalence, characteristics and needs of long-stay patients within forensic psychiatric settings. Sixty nine documents from 14 countries were identified. Reports on what constitutes ‘long-stay’ and on the characteristics of long-stay patients were inconsistent. Factors most frequently associated with longer stay were seriousness of index offence, history of psychiatric treatment; cognitive deficit, severity of illness, diagnosis of schizophrenia or psychotic disorder, history of violence, and history of substance misuse. Although some countries are developing specific long-stay services, there is presently no consensus on what might constitute ‘best practice’ in such settings.en
