The role of the GP in the management of schizophrenia
Burns T., Bristow M.
This article looks at the way the management of schizophrenia has changed over recent years both in terms of pharmacological advances and innovations in community management. The upshot of these changes is that sufferers and their families are brought much more into contact with primary care. We look at the GP's role at every stage of the illness and review some studies examining systematic primary care interventions in this difficult condition.
