Abstract

This article outlines the work of close supervision centres within the prison services. The work outlines the development of such centres and how they currently manage those prisoners considered to be highly dangerous. The author illustrates how the role of the forensic psychiatric nurse in such a setting contributes to the assessment and management of severe personality disorder among such prisoners, and how the use of evidence based practice can enhance care of this client group.
