This nested design clinical outcome study of psychiatric case manager education on disease state, psychopharmacology of schizophrenia, relapse, motivational interviewing, and the process of psychological adjustment post-psychosis (Milestones of Adjustment Post-Psychosis Recovery Model-MAPP) will test the following hypotheses:

  1. Medication non-adherence in patients with schizophrenia assigned to case managers who receive MAPP training will decrease from their pre-study rate and from the reported national average after one year enrollment compared to consumers not enrolled in the MAPP arm of the study.
  2. Consumers in the MAPP intervention will have higher Quality of Life Enjoyment and Satisfaction Questionnaire (Q-Les-Q (53) scores than consumers not enrolled in the MAPP at quarterly measures.
  3. Consumers enrolled in the MAPP intervention arm of the study will successfully complete the first two phases of the MAPP Recovery Model in one year.
  4. Consumers in the MAPP intervention arm will have greater symptom reductions at quarterly data points compared to consumers not enrolled in the MAPP intervention arm.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Medication Adherence [ Time Frame: Two years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Specific consumer medication adherence outcome data will be collected quarterly for both groups for two years targeting two specific analyses of change: pharmacy records of prescription refills one year before and quarterly after the educational intervention. These records will be obtained by informed consent from the consumer and respective pharmacies.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Psychological Adjustment Post-Psychosis [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Movement through the four phases of the MAPP: cognitive dissonance, insight, cognitive constancy, and ordinariness and resolution of stage specific themes will be evaluated quarterly for both years of the study and analyzed using latent transitional analysis

  • Quality of Life [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The Quality of Life Enjoyment and Satisfaction Questionnaire (Q-Les-Q) will be administered quarterly to consumers in both arms of the study over two years.

  • Symptom Management [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Symptoms associated with anxiety, depression, psychosis, mania,cognitive difficulties, activities of daily living, medication adherence, interpersonal relationships, general health concerns, and common symptom management strategies will be measured quarterly using the Moller-Murphy Symptom Management Assessment Tool

Estimated Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: November 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date: September 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: September 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: MAPP Trained Case Managers
Consumers assigned to case managers who receive training in the Milestones of Adjustment Post-Psychosis Recovery Model
Behavioral: Training in all modules including MAPP Recovery Model
50% of the case managers will complete all five modules: Disease state,psychopharmacology,symptom management, motivational interviewing and adherence, and the Milestones of Adjustment Post-Psychosis Recovery Model including the MAPP treatment guide.
Active Comparator: Non-MAPP trained case managers
Consumers of case managers not trained in the Milestones of Adjustment Post-Psychosis Recovery Model
Behavioral: Training in all modules except MAPP Recovery Model
50% of the case managers in the study will complete only four training modules: Disease state, psychopharmacology, symptom management, and motivational interviewing and adherence. They will not complete the Milestones of Adjustment Post-Psychosis Recovery Model module.

Detailed Description:
52 psychiatric case managers will receive manualized training in the disease state of schizophrenia, psychotropic medications, motivational interviewing, and relapse prevention. After randomization, 26 case managers will receive additional manualized training in the process of post-psychotic adjustment. Outcomes of 130 consumers (5 per case manager) related to medication adherence, relapse rates, symptom intensity, and quality of life will be evaluated at quarterly intervals over a two-year period. Outcomes of 130 consumers related to medication adherence, relapse rates, symptom intensity, quality of life, and progression through the phases of postpsychotic adjustment (MAPP-Milestones of Adjustment Post-Psychosis Recovery Model) will be evaluated at quarterly intervals via rating scales over a two-year period and the two groups compared.
