The Future Is Friendly: Advances for Improving Patient Outcomes in Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia is characterized by positive, negative, and cognitive symptoms. Evidence suggests functional impairments, which are predominantly associated with negative and cognitive symptoms, substantially interfere with work, school, and interpersonal relationships and are most distressing to patients, leading to a poor overall quality of life. Managing patients with schizophrenia requires assessing and treating all aspects of the disorder to achieve the goals of preventing relapse, increasing function to improve quality of life, and to facilitate re-integration into society.
