CANO ROMERO, Juan Fernando et al. Determinant Issues in Clinical Severity of First Episode Psychosis. rev.colomb.psiquiatr. [online]. 2007, vol.36, n.1, pp.18-30. ISSN 0034-7450.

Introduction: First Episode Psychosis (FEP) many times is the beginning of schizophrenia. Identifying potential indicators of its outcome are one of the most novel themes in psychiatry. Objective: To establish predictive factors within the clinical presentation of patients with First Episode Psychosis. Methods: Patients attending three different psychiatric facilities in Bogotá were included between February 1, 2004 and August 1, 2006. Prior written informed consent was obtained from relatives. Sociodemographic and clinical characteristics were described, as were quality of life and occupational functioning. Some other relevant conditions were also described, such as personal and family history, psychoactive substance use, duration of prodromal symptoms and duration of untreated psychosis (DUP). Data were analyzed using SPSS by means of descriptive and inferential statistics. Results: 82 patients were included in the described period. Mean age was 21,6 years and 57,3% had an intermediate educational level. Over 75% of the patients were classified by the treating doctor according to his/her experience as markedly or extremely ill. None of the explored variables were associated with the severity of the first psychotic episode.
