Abstract [en]

As part of a Nordic comparative study on contact rates of new patients and use of services in seven catchment areas, contact rates and use of services for patients with a functional psychosis during a 1-year follow-up period were investigated. The highest contact rates were found in two large city catchment areas in Stockholm and Copenhagen. Compared to other patients in the cohorts, patients with a functional psychosis were more often found to be unemployed and living alone. They also showed more extensive service use in terms of both voluntary and compulsory admissions, and in the use of day-care facilities. In addition, they were more often multiple users of in-patient care (> or =3 admissions during the follow-up period). Large differences in service use among patients with a functional psychosis were discovered between the catchment areas, with the most extensive use of voluntary in-patient care and day-care facilities in Frederiksberg. Patients most frequently had compulsory admissions in Bodö and least frequently had them in Frederiksberg. Out-patient services were most frequently used in Stockholm. Correlations between levels of resources and use of services for patients with a functional psychosis were in general low, except for the rates of short-term beds, which showed a strong and significant correlation with the number of days in voluntary in-patient care (r=0.89).
