Palliative psychiatry for severe and persistent mental illness


Trachsel, Manuel; Irwin, Scott A; Biller-Andorno, Nikola; Hoff, Paul; Riese, Florian (2016). Palliative psychiatry for severe and persistent mental illness. The Lancet Psychiatry, 3(3):200.

Abstract

Despite all of psychiatry's efforts to prevent mental illness and to promote recovery, some patients will develop severe and persistent mental illness (SMI). These patients represent a particularly vulnerable population, at risk of either therapeutic neglect or overly aggressive care. We propose a complementary approach in the treatment of SMI; palliative psychiatry, as a means to improve quality of care, person-centeredness, and autonomy for SMI patients.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
