Congratulations to Dr. Lois B. Moylan
After many years of collaboration on an international study, Dr. Lois Moylan's research team led by Len Bowers and other prominent researchers from the U.K. were proud to have their findings published in the National Health Service (NHS) monograph, the prestigious British journal, Health Services and Delivery Research.
The study, focusing on seclusion and psychiatric practices for patients with violent behavior, used the instrument and model for escalating violence developed by Dr. Moylan. She has been part of the team and has presented on her work at several international meetings.
