Interruptions to therapy sessions on acute psychiatric wards; how frequent are they, and who does the interrupting?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Aim:

To find out how often therapy sessions conducted on acute psychiatric wards are interrupted and who by.

Methods:

Interruptions or early endings to therapy sessions were recorded as part of a trial of a brief talking therapy for psychosis delivered on acute psychiatric wards.

Results:

Only a minority of therapy sessions were interrupted (19/146; 13%) or ended early (5/146; 3%). Interruptions most commonly came from staff (15/19; 79%) rather from other patients on the ward (4/19; 21%).

Conclusions:

These data show most inpatient therapy sessions can be completed as planned, and provide further support to the feasibility of delivering psychological therapies within these challenging clinical settings.
