Effects of motivational interviewing-based adherence therapy for schizophrenia spectrum disorders: a randomized controlled trial
OPEN Trials | 15 Jun 2015
WT Chien, JH Mui, EF Cheung and R Gray
Non-adherence to antipsychotic medication is commonly found in schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders, thus forming a major obstacle to long-term maintenance treatment and contributing to high relapse rates. With limited evidence on the success of interventions in enhancing medication adherence, this controlled trial was designed to test and evaluate the effectiveness of an adherence therapy (AT) for outpatients with schizophrenia spectrum disorders, based on a motivational interviewing approach over a six-month follow-up period.
