Georgina Robinson was a mental health worker murdered by a patient. This work comes from the public enquiry investigating her death. Leading academics and practitioners, from a wide range of disciplines, have contributed their views about psychiatric patient violence and its management. In the context of public anxiety and public sensitivity, the facts about the risk of violence, especially to staff, are made clear, together with guidance about how risk should be managed. And when violence does occur, there are suggestions about what responses should be made.
