Publication: January 2004
Size: 16 pages (PDF)
Disease management efforts for schizophrenia are less well established than are efforts for other chronic illnesses such as asthma and diabetes. Managing schizophrenia poses more of a challenge than many other chronic diseases because it usually causes greater disability than other mental and physical illnesses. However, disease management strategies have the potential to improve therapeutic outcomes for patients with schizophrenia. This monograph provides an introduction to disease management as well as examples of interventions for schizophrenia.
