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.
