Physical violence is a frequent occurrence in acute community psychiatry units worldwide. Violent acts by patients cause many direct injuries and significantly degrade quality of care. The most accurate tools for predicting near-term violence on acute units rely on current clinical features rather than demographic risk factors.

A range of behavioral and psychopharmacologic treatments have been shown to reduce violence among psychiatric inpatients.
