IMPROVING PHYSICAL HEALTH OUTCOMES IN YOUNG PEOPLE WITH PSYCHOTIC DISORDERS
Grant number: 1142045 | Funding period: 2018 - 2021
Enduring psychotic disorders are associated with a reduced life expectancy by 25 years, which is mainly due to cardiovascular disease. This project will produce a training package that will improve clinician’s skills and knowledge of screening and treatment for physical health risk factors in young people with psychosis. This project will result in the development of an intervention for reducing the prevalence of these cardiovascular risk factors known to contribute to this early mortality.
