The Mechanical Restraint Confounders Risk Alliance Score (MR-CRAS) assesses readiness to be released from mechanical restraint. MR-CRAS was developed and validated in 2018 in forensic psychiatry in Denmark. However, the scale has not been validated on other clinical samples or in other cultural contexts. The current study aimed to examine the content validity of the MR-CRAS in a general psychiatric setting.An interdisciplinary expert panel (N=8), representing four psychiatric wards in the Region of Southern Denmark, rated the relevance and comprehensiveness of MR-CRAS items and sub-scales for a general psychiatric context.All items were considered relevant (I-CVI≥0.78), with the exception of two items (I-CVI=0.75 and 0.38). The item with the lowest I-CVI value is being refined. All subscales had excellent content validity (S-CVI/Ave≥0.90), apart from one (S-CVI/Ave=0.82).Overall, preliminary results suggested that MR-CRAS is applicable in the assessment of the readiness of general psychiatric patients to be released from MR.
