This presentation will outline the methods used to assess the effect of the Structured Communication Approach (SCA) intervention in forensic mental health settings. There will be also be a brief description of the main demographic results obtained, as well as detailing the recruitment and dropout rates. Out of the sites taking part in the trial, 112 patients and 91 primary nurses were allocated to DIALOG or to treatment as usual. Every month for a period of six months, service users met with their allocated nurse to rate their satisfaction with quality of life and treatment to identify areas where additional help was needed. Their responses were displayed on the screen, compared with previous ratings and discussed. The primary outcome was quality of life.

The latter part of the presentation will focus on describing and showing how the SCA intervention was used in the study. This will be through the use of a simulated video session demonstrating the use of the intervention and with the addition of audio recording of actual sessions.
