  1. The Nordic Comparative Study on Sectorized Psychiatry. III. Accessibility of psychiatric services, degree of urbanization and treated incidence.

    Article - En anglais

    As part of a Nordic Comparative Study on Sectorized Psychiatry, accessibility of psychiatric services and degree of urbanization in seven catchment areas were related to treated incidence.

    One-year treated incidence cohorts were used.

    Accessibility was assessed according to referral practice, existence of a round the clock emergency service and geographical location of the services.

    Accessibility was, surprisingly, weakly associated with treated incidence.

    Easy access to the psychiatric services was not related to a high treated incidence of less severe psychiatric problems at the expense of patients suffering from severe illness.

    Geographical distance to the services did not predict the demand for services.

    A positive correlation was found between the degree of urbanization and treated incidence of psychoses but not of other diagnostic groups.
