  • Factors Influencing Compliance in Schizophrenia Patients

    The therapeutic relationship that a clinician builds with his or her patient is a cornerstone of treatment compliance. The most important factor influencing compliance was the patient’s perception of the doctor’s interest in him or her, which is clearly reinforced by the amount of time that physicians spend with their patients. Such a relationship is a prerequisite for a working therapeutic alliance, and providing reliable information is a crucial factor in this context. Information can be given to patients and their relatives or significant others, either informally during scheduled visits or in psychoeducational groups. Providing information includes discussing treatment plans regularly with patients and their significant others, which gives both an active part in the treatment planning process.
