PhD-student, Lea Deichmann Nielsen, OP_101, OP_101 Development of the MR-CRAS and validation of its measurement properties OPEN Odense Patient data Explorative Network, Odense University Hospital, The duration of mechanical restraint is particular prolonged among forensic psychiatric inpatients. Use of a risk assessment instrument during use of coercive measures has shown promising results in reducing the duration. However, no instruments exist for use during mechanical restraint. This project will focus on developing a short-term risk assessment instrument: Mechanical Restraint - Confounding-Risk-Alliance-Score (MR-CRAS), and validate its measurement properties among experts and forensic psychiatric staff.

PhD-student, Ingrid Charlotte Andersen, OPEN Odense Patient data Explorative Network, Odense University Hospital, OP_119 Participating in care characterized of transitions between hospital and home, The study examines how patients with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and close family members within a year manage to participate in their own care during and after hospitalization for exacerbation of COPD. It is designed as an ethnographic inspired fieldwork using the COPD assessment test (CAT), participant observations and interviews as methods. Results of the study may influence on a rethinking of self-management programs tailored to individual patient-family needs and preferences.

ERM is a risk management tool, with focus on improving collaboration between caregiver and patient. The method describes identification of patients individual "Early Warning Signs" (EWS) of escalating psychosis, through caregiver - patient interviews. The Method is a longitudinal study, with mixed methods design, including case cross over. 125 patients with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder will be collected from Psychiatric outpatient clinics in the region of Southern Denmark.
