Antisocial personality disorders (ASPD): consultation on the draft guideline

A clinical practice guideline on Antisocial personality disorders is being developed for use in the NHS in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Registered stakeholders for this guideline were invited to comment on the provisional recommendations via this website.

Note that the provisional recommendations presented here do not constitute the Institute's formal guidance on this topic. The recommendations are provisional and may change after consultation.


Consultation on the draft of the guideline is complete and the guideline is being modified in the light of comments received.


What will happen to your comments:

  • All comments (with the exception of personal, individual comments and late comments) are sent to the developers at the end of the consultation
  • Comments from registered stakeholders and nominated expert reviewers ONLY are formally responded to by the developers and posted on the NICE website after the final guideline is published
  • No action is taken upon receipt of personal, individual comments and late comments.
  • Please note: The Institute reserves the right to summarise and edit comments received during consultations, or not to publish them at all, where in the reasonable opinion of the Institute, the comments are voluminous, publication would be unlawful or publication would be otherwise inappropriate.

Comments received in the course or consultations carried out by the Institute are published in the interests of openness and transparency, and to promote understanding of how recommendations are developed. The comments are published as a record of the submissions that the Institute has received, and are not endorsed by the Institute, its officers or advisory committees.

Anticipated publication date: January 2009
