Follow-up on mental illness in medical inpatients: health care use and self-rated health and physical fitness.

Author information

Department of Psychiatric Demography, Psychiatric Hospital, Aarhus, Denmark.


Consecutively admitted internal medical inpatients (N=294) who were psychiatrically assessed with the Schedules for Clinical Assessment in Neuropsychiatry in a two-phase design were followed up in a review of public files on their use of medical care over 18 months. Self-rated outcome was assessed from health and fitness ratings at admission and after 1 year. ICD-10 mental disorders had a statistically significant impact on the risk (odds ratio) of high use (above the 80th percentile) of primary care, as did ICD-10 anxiety/depression, and worry about illness (as assessed by the Whiteley-7 Scale). The authors found a less-than-significant tendency for mental illness to influence the use of inpatient admissions and self-rated outcome.
