Abstract

The authors suggest assessment of problems resulting from symptoms together with objective functioning, which clinical psychiatrists are actually doing in everyday practice, would serve as a minimum set of standardized assessment in schizophrenia, and the newly developed TIP-Sz and FACT-Sz would serve for that purpose. Other crucial viewpoints could be supplemented with (subjective) assessment scales as appropriate.
