Schizophrenia (update) (CG82)
Core interventions in the treatment and management of schizophrenia in primary and secondary care (update)
The advice in the NICE guideline covers:
- the care, treatment and support that adults (aged 18 and older) with schizophrenia should be offered. This includes people who develop schizophrenia before they are 60 and continue to require treatment after this age.
It does not specifically look at:
- the care and treatment of people who develop schizophrenia after they are 60
- the care provided for people younger than 18 except those who are receiving treatment from early intervention services
- the treatment of other conditions that people with schizophrenia may often have, such as depression, anxiety or personality disorder. NICE has produced separate guidance about these and about post-traumatic stress disorder and drug and alcohol problems. See the NICE website (www.nice.org.uk) for more information.
