Schizophrenia—A Follow-up Study of Results of Treatment: I. Design and Other Problems

Schizophrenia—A Follow-up Study of Results of Treatment: I. Design and Other Problems Abstract • This is the first of a series of articles on a follow-up study of the results of treatment of schizophrenia, studied over a period of two to five years after first admission and first release. The study compares the follow-up outcome of five different treatment methods given to first-admission male and female schizophrenic patients in the hospital. The design of the study is used as a basis for description and discussion of the practical, ethical, and statistical problems involved. A distinction is made between follow-up and continued treatment design, and it is concluded that both pose massive problems in execution, analysis, presentation, and interpretation. References 1.

Abstract

Abstract • This is the first of a series of articles on a follow-up study of the results of treatment of schizophrenia, studied over a period of two to five years after first admission and first release. The study compares the follow-up outcome of five different treatment methods given to first-admission male and female schizophrenic patients in the hospital. The design of the study is used as a basis for description and discussion of the practical, ethical, and statistical problems involved. A distinction is made between follow-up and continued treatment design, and it is concluded that both pose massive problems in execution, analysis, presentation, and interpretation. References 1.
