SPP Background 2

SPP Topic: Reducing Readmissions for Psychiatric Patients through Medication Assessment


Background Instructions:The background should build a logical, rationale, argument for doing the project. It should be very well referenced and represent a brief synthesis of the literature that you read in order to build your argument.

-Include numbers/percentages of patients being re-admitted, globally (if available), definitely nationally. 

-You could speak to the cost. 

-Speak to the impact of individuals not following their medication regimens. 

-And perhaps include more of why patients do not adhere… 

-Also, address the potential lack of education (a but deeper).
