Abstract
Background and Aims: Mental Health Advance Directives (ADs) are potentially useful for bipolar patients due to the episodic characteristic of their disease. An advanced directives based cognitive therapy (ADCBT) involving the self-determination model for adherence, the cognitive representation of illness model, and the concordance model is studied on this article.
The aim of the study is to evaluate ADBCT's impact on the number and duration of hospitalization as well as commitment and seclusion procedures.
Methods: Charts of all patients who have written their ADs following an ADBCT intervention since at least 24 months were included in the study. Number and duration of psychiatric hospitalization for a mood or a psychotic episode as well as commitment and seclusion procedures were recorded for each patient two years before ADBCT and during a follow up of at least 24 months.
Results: Number of hospitalizations, number of commitment procedures and number of days spent in psychiatric hospital reduced significantly after ADCBT in comparison of the two years who preceded the intervention.
Conclusions: ADBCT seems to be effective in patients with compliance and coercion problems in this retrospective study. Its effect remains however to be confirmed in large prospective studies.
