Cunningham, Gerry (2012) Analysis of episodes of involuntary re-admission in Ireland (2007-2010). Irish Journal of Psychological Medicine , 29 , (3) , pp. 180-184.

Objectives: Initial examination of data held by the Mental Health Commission indicated a number of patients having repeated involuntary readmissions (defined as patients having three or more involuntary episodes in a calendar year). The Commission sought more empirical analysis of the data relating to these patients, to determine if there were any trends or commonality regarding their demographic characteristics, length of episode, and diagnoses.
