In 1998 the Royal College of Psychiatrists produced a guideline (Occasional Paper OP41) for the management of imminent violence in mental health services. This report covers the same ground in relation to learning disability settings, and presents the evidence base on this important topic. The evidence is presented under headings such as the ‘environment’, ‘staff training’, ‘organisational issues’, ‘physical intervention’ (including seclusion), and ‘rapid tranquillisation’. For each section, hypotheses were drawn from the original report, and the search for the evidence was based on those hypotheses.
