Author information

Nursing Service for Research, Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Veterans Hospital, Bedford, Massachusetts, USA.


Clinical practice guidelines are designed for use with consumers. However, consumers are rarely consulted about their development. This paper describes a research project to develop clinical practice guidelines for a community meeting to prevent and intervene with assaultive behavior. The research included consumer input from psychiatric inpatients. The two-phase approach with the consumers included a focus group, followed by survey research. Results, problems, and recommendations are presented.
