  1. Fulltext. Gender differences among civilly committed schizophrenia subjects.

    Article - En anglais


    The authors describe a sample of 815 acutely ill schizophrenia patients hospitalized under a petition for involuntary inpatient treatment and illustrate how this group of patients can be considered as more representative of involuntary commitment status than more traditional « involuntary » patients drawn from State hospitals'wards.

    Available demographics of the general population from which the sample was drawn are also presented for comparison.

    The authors then report the gender distribution of several variables-age, marital status, psychoactive substance use, comorbidity, length of stay, and frequency of readmissions-among the study sample and discuss the relevance of these findings.
