This project explores shared decision-making relating to schizophrenia in the Australian context.
The project’s aims are:
- to understand consumers’ and carers’ awareness of the various treatment and support options available for schizophrenia
- to understand consumers’ and carers’ feelings and preferences towards various treatment options.
The project will also:
- assess the degree of involvement of consumers and carers (rather than healthcare providers) in decision-making about treatment
- provide a better understanding of the impact of schizophrenia on quality of life and financial stability for both consumers and carers.
Exploring these processes with consumers and carers will improve understanding of their attitudes towards, and experiences of, shared decision-making in the context of schizophrenia.
This project will provide a better understanding of the role of shared decision-making in promoting better outcomes for people living with schizophrenia.
This project was funded by Janssen.
