Abstract

To provide the most effective care for this difficult patient population, it is helpful to remember that patients with schizophrenia have disease-intrinsic limitations that limit their ability to participate in their care. These limitations are symptoms of a disease and not volitional. For the physician to substitute for these deficits, a certain degree of flexibility as well as the willingness to use unorthodox interventions is necessary. Good medical care is as important for the patient with schizophrenia as for any other patient.
