Abstract

Patients with schizophrenia perform worse than healthy controls on many neuro-psychological tests. However, previous studies of neuro-cognitive function have mostly been carried out on acutely ill or institutionalized patients. The objective of this study was to generate norms for performance of partially remitted community-dwelling patients with schizophrenia on the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE), Partially remitted outpatients attending a depot antipsychotic clinic or a clozapine clinic (n = 272) were tested using the MMSE. Demographic and clinical characteristics associated with MMSE performance, as well as the performance of specific items, were examined. MMSE score was significantly associated with educational status and race. Patients in our sample performed approximately 2-3 points below the population norms at allages, but the mean score for the group was not in the impaired range. There was no apparent widening of this gap with advancing age. Patients who did poorly most frequently had difficulty with memory, attention and construction tasks. The MMSE is easy to administer to outpatients with schizophrenia and most patients score in the un-impaired range. The MMSE may be used to identify a subgroup of patients who score in the impaired range, for further investigations. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
