Future Research Needs

  • Continuing improvements in methodological rigor in the field, including the following:
    • Consistently used standardized, validated outcome measure(s) for each target of therapy.
    • Thorough descriptions of study participants and interventions.
  • Large, publicly funded, multisite studies of existing interventions across all treatment types and studies with extended followup times.
  • Standardized and validated outcome measures for each target of therapy.
  • Research on medical interventions for which no research has been conducted and on atypical antipsychotics that are less associated with adverse events than are risperidone and aripiprazole.
