Abstract

Aim: To investigate the presence of offences in the previous past history of perpetrators of violent acts who have undergone forced medical treatment. Methods: The documentation of all patients released over a 10-year period from the National Institute of Forensic Psychiatry (IMEI) was reviewed. A comparison was drawn between patients who were convicted of any type of offense before the violent act (patients with previous offences-PPO) and those who were not (patients with no previous offences-PNO). Results: Eighty-six (29%) and 208 (71 %) patients förmed the PPO and PNO groups, respectively. Prior contact with psychiatric services was significantly higher in the PPO group (p=0.038) and this group was alsó more likely to offend under the influence of a psychoactive substance (p
