OxRisk is a project by the Forensic Psychiatry and Psychology group at the University of Oxford.

We have developed four freely available web-based risk calculators:

OxRec – Risk of Recidivism Tool, also available in Swedish, and Greek

OxMIV – Mental Illness and Violence Tool, also available in Greek

OxMIS – Mental Illness and Suicide Tool

FoVOx – Forensic Psychiatry and Violence Tool
