Multidisciplinary Approach to Treatment of Patients with First-Episode Psychosis
Interview with Dr. Charles Schulz, University of Minnesota, USA, recorded at APA 2016, Atlanta
Chuck Schulz details the University of Minnesota Schizophrenia Program, which follows the RAISE integrated care model. People with FEP are seen by a multidisciplinary team of psychiatrists specialising in schizophrenia, psychologists assisting in cognitive remediation therapy (CRT), and nurses who manage the ward. Furthermore, the program recognises the importance of family involvement and has pioneered efforts to incorporate family education and training into therapy-focused treatment programs.
