The Registry of Coercive Measures in Psychiatric Treatment (TIP) contains details of coercion used on patients admitted to psychiatric departments. At the heart of the register is data on specific coercive measures such as detention, compulsory treatment, strapping down and the use of physical force.
All data on the use of force on admission and hospitalization in a psychiatric department has been registered for every individual patient since 1 January 1999. In addition to data on coercive measures , the registry also contains details of name, CPR No., health and crimes.
TIPs data structure was changed as part of the switch from paper to electronic reporting, with internal data entry into the Danish Health Authority's Electronic Reporting System (SEI) being used in 2004. Since 2005, data has been registered in SEI electronically directly from psychiatric departments.
