Psychiatric News (12/10) reports, “Individuals over age 60 with schizophrenia who were prescribed long-acting injectable (LAI) antipsychotics after being discharged from a hospital were significantly less likely to be rehospitalized within a year than those receiving oral antipsychotics,” researchers concluded after analyzing “data on 1,168 patients over age 60 with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder who were discharged between January 1, 2006, and December 31, 2017.” The findings were published online ahead of print in the January issue of the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry.
