Should we allow patients with schizophrenia and bipolar disease to self-manage medicines in hospital

Nurses, psychiatrists, pharmacists and patients were positive towards medication self-management during the hospitalisation of persons with schizophrenia and bipolar disease under specific conditions. According to the participants, medication self-management offered many benefits, including the implementation of more structure for the patient, an ameliorated preparatory phase towards discharge, and an actual improvement of future adherence. All participants considered medication self-management to contribute to more profound medication knowledge and an overall improvement of their health literacy.
