A questionnaire was sent to 200 consultant psychiatrists enquiring about their current practice towards informing their patients on neuroleptic medication about the long-term risks of tardive dyskinesia. It was agreed by 75% of Ss that most psychotic patients receiving ongoing treatment with neuroleptic drugs are capable of informed decisions regarding their medication. This study was similar to one conducted in the UK (Chaplin and Potter, 1996) and results are compared. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)
