Consideration of all evidence about community treatment orders.
On the OCTET and supervised community treatment orders
  • F. Mustafa
  • Medicine, Psychology
    Medicine, science, and the law
  • 2014
TLDR
It is concluded that CTOs did not reduce hospitalisation or improve clinical or social functioning, and recommended an urgent review of their current high usage, and the OCTET has a number of potentially serious methodological problems that limit its external and internal validity.
Community treatment orders do not reduce hospital readmission in people with psychosis
  • S. Segal
  • Medicine, Psychology
    Evidence-Based Mental Health
  • 2013
TLDR
This study failed to address research supported hypotheses indicating that CTOs reduce the duration of hospital episodes preceding release, reduce victimisation and mortality, and allowed “those [psychiatrists] committed to a routine use of protracted Section 17” to not enrol patients.
Compulsory community and involuntary outpatient treatment for people with severe mental disorders.
TLDR
CCT was no more likely to result in better service use, social functioning, mental state, or quality of life compared with either standard voluntary or supervised care, however, people receiving CCT were less likely to be victims of crime than those on voluntary care.
Community treatment orders should be introduced in the Republic of Ireland
TLDR
The inpatient bed pool has shrunk in Ireland and further bed reductions in line with Vision for Change policy and development of community supports, such as home treatment services, are in the pipeline, but it also requires that the laws governing inpatient treatment need to be extended into the community.
Introduction of Community Treatment Orders in the Republic of Ireland : For and Against
TLDR
The inpatient bed pool has shrunk in Ireland and further bed reductions in line with Vision for Change policy and development of community supports, such as home treatment services, are in the pipeline, but it also requires that the laws governing inpatient treatment need to be extended into the community.
Naturalistic outcomes of community treatment orders: antipsychotic long-acting injections versus oral medication
TLDR
CTO duration was longer for those prescribed an antipsychotic LAI at CTO initiation, although the time to first admission and number of admissions did not differ between groups.

Compulsory community and involuntary outpatient treatment for people with severe mental disorders.
TLDR
CCT results in no significant difference in service use, social functioning or quality of life compared with standard voluntary treatment, and court-ordered 'Outpatient Commitment' with voluntary community treatment.
Compulsory community and involuntary outpatient treatment for people with severe mental disorders.
TLDR
Compulsory community treatment results in no significant difference in service use, social functioning or quality of life compared with standard care, and people receiving compulsory community treatment were, however, less likely to be victims of violent or non-violent crime.
Can involuntary outpatient commitment reduce hospital recidivism?: Findings from a randomized trial with severely mentally ill individuals.
TLDR
Outpatient commitment can work to reduce hospital readmissions and total hospital days when court orders are sustained and combined with intensive treatment, particularly for individuals with psychotic disorders.
Lawfulness of a randomised trial of the new community treatment order regime for England and Wales.
TLDR
It is argued that a group of patients can be identified who meet - simultaneously - the tests for treatment under both the CTO and the leave schemes and could be allocated lawfully to treatment under either scheme.
Reinstitutionalisation in mental health care: comparison of data on service provision from six European countries
TLDR
Reinstitutionalisation is taking place in European countries with different traditions of health care, although with significant variation between the six countries studied, and general attitudes to risk containment in a society may be more important than changing morbidity and new methods of mental healthcare delivery.
The ethical challenges of a randomized controlled trial of involuntary outpatient commitment
Involuntary outpatient commitment (OPC) is a civil justice procedure intended to enhance compliance with community mental health treatment, to improve functioning, and to reduce recurrent
How Mental Health Clinicians View Community Treatment Orders: A National New Zealand Survey
TLDR
New Zealand law should continue to authorise compulsory outpatient care, provided it is carefully targeted and adequate community services are available, and the precise impact of community treatment orders on patients' quality of life remains an open question.
Assessing the New York City involuntary outpatient commitment pilot program.
TLDR
The study evaluated the effectiveness of a three-year outpatient commitment pilot program established in 1994 at Bellevue Hospital in New York City, and found that persons with a history of violence were excluded from the program.
Community supervision orders.
TLDR
It is agreed with Seaton that deaths from known occupational disease should be reported to the coroner; but the use of such necropsies to establish the necessity of referral is not acceptable practice.
The ethics of mandatory community treatment.
TLDR
The authors argue that consideration of decisionmaking capacity is preferable to dangerousness criteria, that clinical criteria with some flexibility should be developed so that mandatory community treatment is used only when alternatives have failed, and that consumers must be involved in the development and implementation of mandatory outpatient treatment programs.
