Abstract

Various techniques have been used to assess the results of 'deinstitutionalisation'. This paper reviews these outcome studies, most of which have concluded that a new long-stay group will replace the old long-stay patients, and that a residual group of ageing patients, mostly with organic syndromes, is difficult to accommodate in the community.
