The Educated Patient- Schizophrenia: Medline Plus

Direct your patients to this site for a reliable review of five types of schizophrenia.

Starting with a simple definition of schizophrenia, this site introduces the five types of the disease—catatonic, disorganized, paranoid, residual, and undifferentiated—and discusses the symptoms associated with each type. Available treatment options for schizophrenia are discussed, as are the associated side affects with each treatment. This resource also provides patients with information about possible complications of both the disease itself and the treatment options, tips for recognizing when calling a health professional may be necessary, and how to prevent symptom relapse.
