Evaluation of shared decision making training for patients with schizophrenic disorders

Project leader: PD Dr. Johannes Hamann, TU München


An increased involvement in therapeutic decisions is called for in particular for the treatment of psychiatric patients. On the one hand, the long-term results in this area are still unsatisfactory due to non-adherence, and on the other hand, this group of patients in particular suffer under pressure or dictation from the part of physicians. Ultimately, for patients with psychiatric disorders, their illness often makes it difficult for them to articulate their participation needs to their physicians and to play an active part in the decision-making process. If these patients are to be integrated into a shared decision-making process, their deficits have to be taken into account and the patients have to be directly motivated and prepared for the shared decision-making process. The aim of the current project is to evaluate a corresponding shared decision-making training program for patients with schizophrenia in the framework of a randomised-controlled investigation. It is expected that the patients will be more highly motivated through the participation in this training and better enabled to play a part in therapeutic decisions, which will in turn lead to an improvement in the treatment satisfaction and thus also the long-term adherence.
