Abstract

Quantifying (lie functional consequences of illness in terms of quality oflife can enhance our understanding of both mental and physical disorders. However, little is known about the quality of life among older inpatients vs. outpatients with schizophrenia. We present the results of health-relatedquality of life assessments in 54 middle-aged and elderly long-term inpatients with schizophrenia and a demographically matched outpatient sample. Assessments were performed using the Quality of Well-Being (QWB) scale, alongwith standard measures of psychopathology and global cognitive impairment. Compared with outpatients, the inpatients had a significantly lower health-related quality of life, as measured by the QWB. In the inpatient and outpatient groups, higher levels of positive symptoms were associated with lower health-related quality of life. Health-related quality of life remained fairly stable among the inpatients who remained hospitalized over 6 months. In both inpatients and outpatients, baseline cognitive status and psychopathology predicted QWB scores at the 6-month follow-up. These findings further support the use of the QWB in severely mentally ill populations; implications for improving health-related quality of life among older patients withschizophrenia are discussed.
