Outpatient civil commitment orders are used internationally (Community Treatment Orders) and here in the US (Assisted Outpatient Treatment). CTOs and AOT have similar goals- patient and public safety. International research has been equivocal about the effectiveness of outpatient orders. This webinar will explore the evidence available to show that outpatient civil commitment is associated with improved adherence to treatment, reduced mortality and violence risk. Dr. Segal will also explain why outcome measures of prevention of hospitalization or total hospital days may not be the best indicators of program success. Patient’s rights advocates have been promoting restrictions to OCC by requiring a determination of lack of capacity to institute an order. The impact of this change will be discussed.
