Abstract

This hypothesis-generating study had the objective of dissecting the process of psychiatric care in an attempt to understand outcomes for patients and their families. In all, 24 patients who carried a DSM–III diagnosis of major affective disorder were identified 12–18 months after hospital admission. The patients, their families, and their doctors were interviewed using instruments measuring delivery of treatment and achievement of treatment goals; findings were then correlated with resolution of the index episode and patient global outcome. Delivery of patient and family psychoeducation was associated with better resolution of the index episode and better global outcome.
