Brief Summary:


Shared Decision Making (SDM) refers to a process of health care delivery in which practitioners and clients seeking help with decisions, collaborate to access relevant information and enable client-centered selections of health care resources (1, 2). SDM leads to better treatment adherence and outcomes for people with a medical problem (3). SDM principles have previously been used in psychiatry to improve antipsychotic and antidepressant medication adherence (4, 5); however, these principles have yet to be applied to psychiatric rehabilitation (6).

The current research uniquely aims to test the development and implementation of a SDM intervention for people with psychotic spectrum disorders (e.g., schizophrenia and affective disorder) during the referral process to psychiatric rehabilitation services. The study will be conducted this year using a randomly selected sample from the population of people with psychotic spectrum disorders hospitalized in SHALVATA psychiatric hospital in Israel. It aims to facilitate better treatment and rehabilitation outcomes. It has received the support and approval of the Mental Health Division of the Ministry of Health (MOH) in Israel, the institutional review board (IRB) by the university of Haifa, Israel and a Helsinki committee approval by SHALVATA psychiatric hospital and the MOH in Israel.
