Frequent patient contact appears to account for an impressively low relapse rate in both arms of a study comparing long-acting injectable (LAI) antipsychotic risperidone and second-generation oral antipsychotics, according to a report in Psychiatric Services in Advance.
I’m lucky if I get 30mins contact a fortnight. Resources are spread thin.
And this time is spent doing my depot…
I get about 5 mins on average with the depot unless they are also doing blood pressure,weight etc.
i’m the complete opposite, i have had the help of a good friend for many years and now i am trying to get less attention, i want a bit of space, my friend has been a great source of help through the years and its down to her that i am well enough to try and get a job.
Don’t know about elsewhere but here in the UK I think you get put on autopilot if you are chronically as opposed to acutely ill.
