Training School 2014
10 September, 2014 - 12 September, 2014
Training School 2014 will focus on ‘Active Management of Length of Stay: Forensic Triage and Recovery’
Rationale: The greatest risk on admission to a forensic hospital is prolonged length of stay. It is essential to admit patients to a level of therapeutic security that is proportionate to their need. It is then essential to ensure that detention in a secure hospital is for no longer than necessary. Length of stay can be actively managed by providing effective interventions and monitoring progress towards less structured placements and discharge.
Aim: This course will provide training in the use of assessment instruments that facilitate model processes for active management of length of stay in forensic hospitals and services. These are based on recent research and experience.
Expected Outcomes: Improved outcomes for patients, due to improved consistency in admission processes and improved monitoring of progress.
This years training school will take place in Nijmegen, the oldest city of The Netherlands, on the 10th and 12th of September 2014. The program will finish early at least one day so the Long-term forensic psychiatric facility in Zeeland, part of the Pompe Foundation, can be visited.
