Record ID 32000008076
Authors' objectives:

This review summarises the available evidence on the nursing care of people with schizophrenia.

Authors' recommendations: In Western countries, the emphasis in psychiatric care has shifted from inpatient care to outpatient services. This change means that people with schizophrenia must have access to a functioning family and support network. The scientific evidence presented in international studies upon which this report is based shows that important areas for development in psychiatric care are education, support, and information to families of individuals affected by schizophrenia.
