Inpatient participation in treatment planning: a preliminary report.

ABSTRACT:
This study investigated the effect of patient participation in treatment planning conferences (TPCs) upon length of hospitalization and upon the frequency of military soldiers being returned to duty. Patients with major affective disorders and schizophrenic disorders showed an 8.2% decrease in hospital stay whereas patients with minor affective disorders, personality disorders, substance abuse, and adjustment disorders showed a 98.8% increase. Additionally, the percentage of active duty soldiers with a major depressive episode who were returned to duty increased significantly when they participated in their TPC.
