It is essential for healthcare professionals to share good practice and information in partnership with those who use health and social care services (National Institute for Mental Health in England 2008). The aim of this guide is to inform all practitioners, managers, service users and carers about the use of intramuscular (IM) depot and long-acting injectable (LAI) antipsychotic medication. The recognition of service users’ need for privacy, safety and dignity when receiving these injections will be emphasised.
