ANGLES, Judith et al. Evaluation of the Individualized Services Plan after ten years of functioning in two districts of Barcelona. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2018, vol.38, n.134, pp.401-417. ISSN 2340-2733.

The objective of this work is to assess the effectiveness of the Individualized Service Plan (PSI) after 10 years of functioning. It is a retrospective study that takes into account clinical, psychosocial and variables related to use of services. Comparisons of these variables between the time people enter and leave the program are made. PSI is effective in measures of clinical and psychosocial functioning, and a significant decrease in hospitalization is observed. The majority of people received continuity of care after discharge. In addition, the comparison between the first 5 years of operation of the program and the following 5 years yielded only a decrease in the intensity of the intervention. Finally, a study of the relationship between variables considered important is carried out. Overall, the PSI is effective in the care of patients with long-term severe mental illness and with difficulties in maintaining contact with services.
