Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

This paper describes the frequency of remission in former inpatients with schizophrenia as well as its relations with sociodemographic and other relevant variables.

METHODS:

The characteristics of 88 schizophrenia patients (ICD-10 F20.x) were examined in an extensive quality-monitoring-project at the Ev. Krankenhaus Bethanien Greifswald, Germany, encompassing a one-year follow-up.

RESULTS:

10.2 % of the patients reached remission during the 12-months follow-up. The rate of readmissions was 42.1 %.

CONCLUSIONS:

The frequency of remission in our sample is considerably less than the approximated 38 % from previous studies. This might be attributed to selection-bias and lack of representation in previous follow-up studies with schizophrenia inpatients.
