Abstract

Objective: To review recent advances in medication practices and standards of care in the treatment of schizophrenia and examine the disparity between the knowledge base and clinical practice. Data Sources: Key literature on medication practices, novel pharmacotherapies, and the evolution of practice guidelines for schizophrenia were reviewed. Discussion: Emerging data demonstrate a lack of consistent application of current knowledge and best practices, in part due to major structural inconsistencies in the public mental health system. Implementation of results from effectiveness research as well as the incorporation of practice guidelines may help bridge this gap. Conclusion: As standards of care for schizophrenia are developed, the following issues will need particular attention: coordination with the criminal justice system, comprehensive treatment of comorbid illnesses, outcomes based on symptoms in all domains, and continuous and integrated collection of data to produce rational cost justification.
