Interview with Dr John Kane on Advances and Limitations in Psychopharmacology, SIRS, April 2014

Dr John Kane, Chairman of Psychiatry at The Zucker Hillside Hospital, talks about the advances that have been made in psychopharmacology, but also of his disappointment at a lack of revolutionary new treatments based on new mechanisms. He cites relative successes with controlling symptoms, but also the need to improve rates of recovery. He explains his ongoing study Recovery After an Initial Schizophrenia Episode (RAISE) which treats first episode patients with a state of the art combination of psychopharmacology and psychosocial treatments, with the hope that well-structured early interventions can increase rates of recovery and ultimately improve quality of life.
