Abstract

Background The isolation experienced by many patients with severe psychotic disorders is generally assumed to be due to their social withdrawal. An alternative possibility is that relatives avoid frequent contact with patients because they find the situation distressing. Aims To examine the predictors of frequent patient-relative contact, in particular the role of relatives' experience. Method UK700 trial data were used to determine baseline predictors of frequent contact and establish whether relatives' experience at baseline predicted continued frequent contact 2 years later. Results Neither characteristics associated in the literature with relatives' 'burden' nor relatives' experience predicted patient- relative contact frequency Instead, the predictors were mainly demographic. Conclusions Many relatives experience considerable distress, but the evidence does not suggest that they avoid frequent contact with the patient as aconsequence. Declaration of interest The UK700 trial was funded by grants from the UK Department of Health and the NHS Research and Development programme.
