The aim of this project is a re-validation of MR-CRAS in general psychiatry. MR-CRAS is a new risk assessment instrument developed to reduce the duration of mechanical restraint (MR). MR-CRAS has been validated in forensic psychiatry but not in general psychiatry. The current study will test the content and construct validity and predictive validity of MR-CRAS within general psychiatry.
This study is conducted as a qualitative mixed method field study. Data is collected using interviewed questionnaires among 1) a panel of 12 experts (head psychiatrists, head nurses and/or researcher within general psychiatry) and 2) nurses, nurse-assistants and social and healthcare assistants having contact with adult inpatients in general psychiatry.
The study will provide information on the validity of MR-CRAS in a general psychiatry context.
The study results aim to provide a checklist that may reduce duration of mechanical restrain within adult general psychiatry.
