Declaration of Hawaii

Ethical and practice guidelines developed by the World Psychiatric Association for the worldwide practice of psychiatry. It defines psychiatry as medical treatment of psychiatric disorders, requires maintenance and use of current clinical knowledge, and describes the parameters of the therapist-patient relationship and the need to safeguard an incapacitated or judgment-impaired individual's rights. Assessments are to be performed with full knowledge by the person being assessed, and confidentiality is protected in the course of the therapeutic intervention. Research is to be undertaken with the supervision of an ethical committee, and established rules are followed for research by individuals properly trained for research.
