  1. An evaluation of community-based psychiatric care for people with treated long-term mental illness.

    Article - En anglais

    Background

    We evaluated integrated, multidisciplinary, community-based care for a cohort of people with treated long-term mental illness over two years in a field trial set in a semi-rural setting.

    The aim was to organise local psychiatric services on an extramural basis with general practitioner teams as the key element.

    Method

    Trained research workers used a structured interview to collect standardised baseline and three-monthly socio-demographic, clinical, social, family adjustment and burden, and treatment measures from patients, informants, and key-workers.

    Analysis included descriptive statistics and, for longitudinal data, analysis of best-fitted straight lines.

    Results

    We studied 34 patients who had a mean of 12 years continuous illness.

    At baseline, they were mainly characterised by research workers as mildly ill with fair social adaptive functioning.

    Over two years, there were statistically significant, slight improvements in clinical global impressions ratings by research workers, and in informants ratings of target symptoms and social performance.

    Conclusions

    Integrated, multidisciplinary, community-based psychiatric care for people with treated long-term mental illness is feasible in a semi-rural setting : patients receiving pharmacotherapy and regular psychosocial treatments remained relatively stable on clinical and social measures over two years.
