  16. 16. Mental Illness => High Medical Morbidity & Mortality Therefore do we? i Improve preventive screening ii Enhance quality of routine medical care iii Ensure adequate physical health medication iv Help with treatment adherence (NICE) v Monitor physical health issues
  17. 17. 2. Preventive Health Care Inequality
  18. 18. Screening activities Mammography => use as an example (over) Pap. Smear Vaccinations Lifestyle counselling Blood pressure Bowel cancer screening Breast examination PSA Osteoporosis Hepatitis & HIV
  19. 19. Mammography USPSTF recommendations Screening mammography with or without clinical breast exam (CBE) every 1-2 years starting at age 40 Insufficient evidence for or against CBE alone UK NSC (England) Age 50-70 every 3 years
  20. 20. Mammography and Depression Over 40 years Druss (2008)US n= OR of not having mammogram OR 1.22 (95% CI 1.18-1.26). This difference was even greater if the depression was untreated adj.OR 1.32 ( 1.22- 1.42). Those being treated in secondary care were more likely to have not had a mammogram than those treated in primary care adjusted OR 1.22(95% CI 1.03-1.44). Pirraglia (2004) US n=3302 Those who screened positive for depression were less likely to have a mammogram in the subsequent year adj. OR 0.84 (95% CI 0.73-0.97). Stecker et trend to increased use in Depression vs Hypertensive controls Green and Pope, US 2000, n=589 showed increased rates of mammography Over 65 year olds 2 US studies showing no difference n=3864 Over 50 year olds Canadian study showed no difference, n =1,868 European study showed no difference, n = 15,380
  21. 21. Mammography and any mental disorder Werenke (2006) UK n= 533,340 no difference for mental health service users but those on enhanced care were less likely to attend (OR 0.4 95% CI 0.29- 0.55). more than 2 admissions to a mental health hospital were less likely to attend for mammography (OR 0.65, 95% CI, 0.49-0.85). Carney and Jones (2006) US n= 191356, 5 year study period: high risk OR 0.38 (95% CI 0.33-0.43), moderate risk 0.62 (95% CI 0.59-0.66). last 2 years: low risk 0.95(95% CI 0.92-.99), moderate risk OR 0.71 (95% CI 0.66-0.75), high risk OR 0.63 (95% CI 0.53-0.75). Lasser (2003) US n=526 no difference for mammography in last 2 years Steiner (1998) US n=64 no difference Iezzoni (2001) US n=11399 a trend to reduced use of mammography (SMI) in the last 2 yrs OR 0.6 (95% CI 0.4 – 1.1)
  22. 22. Mammography and Schizophrenia Chochinov (2009) Canada n=110,240 In comparison to the general population (without schizophrenia) (n=108,792), women with schizophrenia (n=1448) OR 0.64 of mammography in the selected two year period. Carney and Jones (2006) n=191,356 No difference over five years less likely in the last two years OR 0.31 (95% CI 0.12-0.83). Werenke (2006) UK n= 533,340 Those with a diagnosis of psychosis were the least likely to attend for mammography OR 0.33 (95% CI 0.18-0.61) Lindamer (2003) US n=116 (Convenience sample) in last 2 years 68% of women with psychotic disorder 98% of respondents to advertisement Druss (2002) US less likely to have had a mammogram in last 2 years (for women aged 50-69 years) adjusted OR 0.78(95% CI 0.67-0.91).

  42. 42. Physical Screening of Psychiatric Patients 57.6% of inpatients receive a comprehensive physical examination (Hodgson R, Adeyemo O. Physical examination performed by psychiatrists. International Journal of Psychiatry in Clinical Practice 2004;8:57-60.) No dental health target achieved in 428 people with Schizophrenia McCreadie RG, et al The dental health of people with schizophrenia. Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica 2004;110:306-10) On screening at admission: 34% of older people had unrecognized medical disorders (Woo BKR, et al. Unrecognized medical disorders in older psychiatric inpatients in a senior behavioral health unit in a university hospital. Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry and Neurology 2003;16:121-5) On screening at admission: 29% had physical disorder (80% previously known 20% new diagnoses). These were contributory to diagnosis in 5.5% (Koran LM, et al Medical disorders among patients admitted to a public-sector psychiatric inpatient unit. Psychiatric Services 2002;53:1623-5.
  43. 43. 6. Can inequalities be Improved?
  44. 44. NICE Schizophrenia guidelines “The higher physical morbidity and mortality of service users with schizophrenia should be considered in all assessments. “Whilst this would normally be expected to be the role of primary care services, secondary care services should nevertheless monitor these matters where they believe a service user may have little regular contact with primary care.” NICE 2002
