Working with Forensic patients is a challenge. As forensic nurses, we provide treatment and rehabilitation to our patient, while respecting rights, and maintaining public safety. One of our goals is to partner with our patients in order that they may achieve rehabilitation to their maximum potential and able to maintain community tenure and prevent risk of recidivism. In september 2001, the forensic nurses in the Outpatient Service of the Law and Mental Health Program at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto adapted a symptom management program geared at a specific population. This program focuses on teaching on teaching forensic patients who are living in the community to learn techniques, interventions, and skills to manage the symptoms of their illness. In so doing, we hope that relapse and recidivism can be averted. This poster presentation will describe the patient outcome of the implementation of the Social and Independent Living Skills: Symptom Management Module Trainer's Manual (1998) developed by the staff of UCLA Clinical Research Center for Schizophrenia and Rehabilitation, Los Angeles, California within the forensic outpatient setting.
