Those of you who joined our webinar by Don Grubin, Belinda Winder, Rebekah Bourne and Callum Ross  on Tuesday 7th May – and those who missed it too – may like to follow up some of the material presented.

Belinda Winder’s paper is particularly useful as it includes references to much of the other material cited as well as being the most up-to-date publication about her research in this field:

Winder, B., Norman, C., Hamilton, J., Cass, S., Lambert, A., Tovey, L., … & Kaul, A. (2024). Evaluation of selective-serotonin reuptake inhibitors and anti-androgens to manage sexual compulsivity in individuals serving a custodial sentence for a sexual offence. The Journal of Forensic Psychiatry & Psychology, 1-36.

This paper is open access.

Don Grubin has supplied us with a copy of the current MMSA Prescribing Guideline which can be viewed here.

There is a planned review with a view to submission for formal acceptance as a national consensus document.

Rebekah Bourne’s impressive account of setting up and managing agreed prescriptions in a holistic framework to optimise safety and good outcomes can be accessed on the Member’s website, together with the other talks.

Callum Ross’s work seeking to establish the extent and range of national practice of anti-libidinal medication prescribing through the Prescribing Observatory for Mental Health (POMH-UK) will come to publication in  due course, but is also available in the recording of the webinar available to our Members.

Research can transform lives. We want to support discoveries about what helps people with mental disorder who have been victims of criminal behaviour, or perpetrators of criminal behaviour, and their families, and the clinicians and others who treat them and, indeed, the wider community when its members are in contact with these problems. More effective prevention is the ideal, when this is not possible, we need more effective, evidenced interventions for recovery and restoration of safety.
